Dissonance

Posted September 8th, 2019

September 8, 12–15, 19–22 + 26–29, 2019

Dissonance is the result of conflict. We seek harmony, so we seek to reconcile differences. This process is part of personal growth and part of opening ourselves to empathy. This solo exhibition explores visual metaphors for dissonance and harmony through geometric patterning in relation to flowing organic forms.
