Movement and Rest and the Hero”s Journey | Sharon Grimes
I was invited to exhibit at the Longview Museum of Fine art and to judge the 57th Annual Student Invitational one year ago.That allowed me only a year to come up with 10 new works that had not been seen before.I considered this to be an important occasion for me since i had not shown in my hometown since 2014. Movement and Rest was an exploration of the tumultuous times in our lives interrupted with periods of rest (indicated by the vertical lines). The Hero’s Journey was an outgrowth of that more linear exploration into an energetic and dynamic spiral. Phases of confusion and darkness amid life’s tests and then passages of light and calm and finally mastery.
