“Emerging through Emergence,” by Julianna Poldi is a series of hearts on canvas that will be exhibited at Redlands Art Association, January 21 – February 11, 2017. The opening reception will be held Friday January 27 from 6 – 8 pm.
“The heart serves symbolically as it communicates a universal language, the source of connection from within, a knowing of truth, of love. That which is at the core of our being. This series is a personal reflection of the heart and its multifaceted language and a reminder of a love that never dies.
In the process of making this body of work, I was struck deeply by the loss of innocent lives from the 2015 attack. I considered the many hearts of innocent victims lost, all their connections to others and all the hearts that were broken. I approached the canvas deeply inspired to keep alive the truth of those lives, that they matter. In this way the heart for me became a portrait.“
