Carrie Gault, Rosalia Torres-Weiner and me(Tina Alberni) got together a few days ago to continue focusing our ideas for the public art we will be creating for the Shammrock Community in Charlotte, NC. Thanks to the Neighborhoods in Creative Partnership grant awarded to us by The Arrs and Science Council, we have a great opportunity to make a difference! Next step, working with the community towards our goal. More news later. Stay tuned!
What's really important is what lies beneath. This is true for anything. A human being is defined by who he truly is inside and that starts developing at a very young age. Same holds true for any architectural structure. it only stands firm if its foundation was laid out properly from its start. I stick to this premise with my work. It is only valuable if its foundation is worthy. I define worthy, in this case, as pure and untainted expression-a "place of mind and soul" where its hard to get to in this world we live in. In my studio, I allow myself to arrive at this state and pour it into the foundations of my current body work. The above, is a glimpse of a piece I am working on. A glimpse of what you will never actually see because it is now covered-up with it's structure. I write, splatter, render, collage and meditate during these "raw" moments of foundation.
