Piece description from the artist
A recurring theme for me is family history and ancestral lines. I have explored and researched many branches of my own family and I am largely motivated by the thought of how day to day lives have changed over the generations. It is also fascinating to explore the elements of a life that do not change. This piece beckons us to remember those things which are too important to forget.
Making art and music has been a life-long practice for Jody Katopothis, and the relationship between these two expressions has become an integral part of her creative explorations. Although each has unique qualities, the two are fully intertwined, complementing, inspiring and informing each other. Her paintings reflect various recurring themes, which are interpreted and reinterpreted over time. These themes include family and ancestral lines, nature's organic beauty, the human organization of nature, and the evolution of humankind from a cultural and spiritual perspective.
