Heal – Maria Gomez Umaña at General Fine Craft, Art & Design

March 3-29, 2015

encaustic and mixed-media constructions

The healing Alphabet

This exhibition includes two bodies of work: The Healing Alphabet, and The Seven Organs. Both employ images, symbols and words to reveal the healing process. Layers of drawing, paint, beeswax and stitchery create levels of interpretation for the viewer to contemplate.

 “All healing is a process that takes time. It happens in layers, as coatings of skin, streams of kind words, soothing sounds and restoring actions. Healing requires enormous courage to face fear and to look at pain closely; it requires creativity and resiliency to carry on. Eventually, we are able to acknowledge its wealth and we are ready to admit the treasure it holds. It then becomes l ush soil, rich humus, and abundant compost for the soul.”   – M.G.U.
