Solo show at Germantown Performing Arts Center 2013
When reflecting on my passion for trompos, or spinning tops, my head literally begins to spin. These seemingly "simple looking" toys are a rather magical combination of movement, balance, speed, color, and meaning.
Trompos have been around for many generations and in many cultures. Like spinning tops, each of us has it's own beauty and story. We are all connected in the circular motion of life.
This circular motion unites us and whatever we do it'll come back to us at some point. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. once said, "an injustice somewhere it's a threat to justice everywhere."
In the painting "Journey" Acrylic on wood, 60" x 23" embark us on an adventure every time we begin spinning.
