Finding Never Never Land
“Never Never Land” was accepted into the SALI National Abstract Art Exhibition in the Garfield Park Art Center in Indianapolis, IN.
A statement from the artist:
This work is like the never never land in the story Peter Pan. It is a metaphor for my search for adventure, and play. Like Peter Pan I am a dreamer and my studio is always filled with pixie dust and the imaginary where I can fly to places I have never never been to before. Juror Mindy Taylor Ross saw something she liked in “Finding Never Never Land” she chose it for inclusion in the Indianapolis Art Center’s 2016 Art From the Heartland Exhibition.
"There are no two identical ways artwork can be viewed. There is no right or wrong when viewing artwork our minds need to be as open as a child’s, playing with colorful building blocks or choosing colors from a box of crayons filled with possibilities." - Christine Alfery
