Yasmeen Strang's exhibition of work:
Apoptosis: Disembodied Vestige
July 4 - August 31, 2022
Ours is not the task of fixing the entire world all at once, but stretching out to mend the part of the world that is within our reach. - Clarissa Pinkola Estes
The poppies of Apoptosis flare and fade from within the void, isolated from their familiar surrounds, they are all the more spellbinding. These compositions bring forth contradictory thoughts and senses. Teaming with life, withering and fading, we pendulum swing between the heavens and the underworld. Reaching, opening, striving, thriving, bursting through, falling, wilting, turning, closing, folding, retreating, disappearing. Each poppy offering its own fixed moment in time, coexisiting amongst a bounty of other vivid and complex instants of life and decay.
Breath ... slowly, deeply. Eyes and heart focus us on the priorities of our soul, time to heal. Time to listen. In our mind, our thoughts explode and scatter like stardust.
What is within our reach? What is worth mending? Where does one begin?
- Sunshine Frère
