Acrylic on Paper
Mel Bikowski 2019
“I seek to honor magical thinking by personifying the landscape of conceptual elements. My latest body of work tells specific stories of sunsets and sunrises based on very real days that happened to me. The modern world is stuffing information into cloud-technology at an exponentially fast rate. We are sitting in environments that are created for sensory-deprivation for long hours before heading home to look at our television screens. In a world where this behavior exists, I wonder how the clouds feel. Painting them is the closest way for me to personify them and make them as human as we are.”
All Works on Paper are made to be affordable. I spent a great deal of time meditating on clouds and painting their emotions about integrating and using their identity for technological advances. They have forgiven us, but are always there to remind us not to trap ourselves in the world of technology and rather look up and be present in our world.
These artworks are really great for putting next to your computer as a reminder to break free. Take breaks. Take a breath. Meditate. And remove yourself from your techno clouds (phone, computer, etc.) Tap into your mind and the world around you. Breath in. Your breath is the most powerful tool you have for healing.
I have signed and dated the work.
