Michael Dalton II: Building Violence

"I believe we are that we are defined by our ability to adapt to change and our swiftness to evolve. Our consciousness is our defense mechanism. It’s the claws and fangs we lack among the animal kingdom.

But our Jungle is a concrete one, not with vines and tree trunks, but with cables and rebar." - Michael Dalton II

Jacqueline Unanue: Labyrinths

March 3 - March 28, 2010

First Friday: March 5, 5 - 9 pm

The Labyrinths series originated in spontaneously done ink drawings. I used parts of these drawings to create the pathways of the labyrinths. For me, they are roads that can lead to my native Chilean landscape and to my people. On some of the canvases, along the borders of these routes, I wrote my thoughts and feelings about my search. In doing so, I am trying to make my imaginary journey actually happen, just as those who made prehistoric rock art used paintings and engravings to reach or obtain what they desired. On some canvasses, I paint with soil from Chile, which “certifies” the reality of my destination.  At the same time, I am using the soil as a magical substance whose power can turn my imaginary journey into a real one.
