THE ELEMENTS

 

project: #9

location: Reno. Idlewild Park.

date: 4/24. 2016

type: collaborative painting. Earth Day Festival.

 

A CONSCIOUS REVOLUTION

Humans have celebrated life and land for ages. Ceremonies of dance lit by raging fires. Mystical Gods marked in ancient black night skies. And meditative thoughts by mountainside trees.  Let’s not forget about this history before the 1970’s conscious revolution. Let’s not forget that preserving the earth and our natural surroundings is an idea as old as man. Earth Day is a collective reminder to cherish that which gives us life.

EARTH. AIR. FIRE. WATER. 

The wooden grid of squares and lines began black and white. But as the people of Reno blocked in the ‘elements’ the complexity of color and life took shape. A mosaic of earth. air. fire. water. A tribute to the day. Another community creation for the Alley Art books.

THOUGHTS FOR TOMORROW.

The festival brought out families and friends to celebrate a day of clean water, fresh air, and appreciation for the natural environment we live within. This idea and practice of awareness and preservation should exist everyday.

Everyday.

We can collectively create a masterpiece… but only if each individual takes the time to add their own positive mark.
