clouds are easy to love

I am going to have a piece shown in a local show called “clouds are easy to love” as well as a piece shannon produced on site, as i was tacking mine to the ceiling. the concept is to have the interpretation of clouds on the ceiling as the other artists work about clouds is shown in the rest of the space. A few people involved in b.a.l.m. are going to have work shown on the ceiling at the Alley Gallery a Percolator Project during the new show.

KT, (who ran the Lawrence Social Service League Store when Brian and I started Cheeseball Clothing Company and was instrumental in providing our recycled pants for the TRI-COLORED PASTA’s, TWO TONES with RACING STRIPES, and was a great encouragement) is going to have the rooftop space for her cloud installation. She is a very enthusiastic caring women who is very involved in the Lawrence community.

Healing Series

Series from Fall 2007- Present – HEALING: 

Introduction-
My son Caden White age four was diagnosed with neuroblastoma cancer (a nervous system cancer in children with around 600 diagnoses per year) June 28th, 2007.  He has been through six of the seven, three to four day chemo rounds, had a stem cell harvest, and had invasive surgery to remove the tumor.  In addition to this the doctors would like him to have a bone marrow transplant and eventually have radiation treatments, additional treatments, and then possibly antibody therapy.  He is currently showing no evidence of disease.  I had never had to deal with any healing issues, but this stirred within me a desire to release these thoughts and feelings that I have surrounding Caden’s health issues.  I feel like working through these ideas in my art has been very helpful to try and focus on the positive things rather on the negative.  I don’t want to downplaying the pain or gloss over heartache, but rather show it in the burning cleansing trial by fire which brings impurities to the surface, so that they can be removed, the poison and pain of medical treatments, all of which is overcome with seared wings of faith, sincere hope, truth, beauty and above all love.  I feel called as an artist to address ideas and truths through my artwork that calls from deep within me to deep within the viewer.

Destination Postcard Show Opening on 11/16/07 from 5-8pm

b.a.l.m, the arts group that Shannon and I facilitate is having an art show called “Destination Postcards” in the Holiday Art Show at the Art Affair Gallery in Baldwin, KS.  The show opening reception is Friday November 16, 2007 from 5-8 pm.  B.a.l.m’s part in the show is from a gathering we had at the end of March, 2007.  I am sure there will be some type of o’rderves and drink. This is your invitation, use it wisely.  I produced two photocopy transfers on copper.  One which is called: 

“Destination: Healing”  with three cropped images of my son Caden’s head in varying positions dealing with issues surrounding his fight with neuroblastoma cancer.

Caden In Three 

The other transfer print is also on copper and is called:“Destination: Life” which there are miniature images of self portrait drawings that I have produced over the years.

“Destination: Life”

 I look forward to seeing anyone who can attend. Darin
