The 1st 20 x 20 International Art Exhibition held last March 20-27, 2021 at Rennes, France was a By-Invitation-Only show entitled "In the Cage of Lockdowns". 🇫🇷🎨
Its theme was precisely about that —the unprecedented times of 2020.
My piece, "Within" showcased a 4-part painting of a French window with a view. 🎨
Instead of looking outward, my art piece looks into the window within us. Being "caged" was the best opportunity I had to stop chasing life and simply rethink it.
Turned out, those many months of isolation were a boon. The four quadrants of my life— creativity, health, relationships, and wealth—like that flourishing tree, blossomed. 🌳🌼
"Within" is an invitation for us to do just that—to look inward. 🙏 Peace and growth begin from knowing that the Truth lies inside of you. It sets you free. 🦅
"Within" means a lot to me. Not only was it adjudged "Ouvre Favorite du Public",🏆 and that it was sold ❤️, but also many of my favorite masters like Monet, Cézanne, Van Gogh, and Picasso launched their art legacies in France. 🇫🇷
Who knows? This too could open a window for me. 🚀🥂
With the Access Team during Opening Day, Curator Margo C. Le Lain, Jean Claude Le Lain, and Thierry Moyon.
