Featured piece: The Secret We Keep, by SR Jones
Two long and narrow bands of rectangular forms run parallel down the center of the composition. Their movement is indefinite as they frame a small structure, and the body of a woman. Abstracted, and unknown, they act as the perfect impetus to transport the viewer into S.R Jones mixed media collage, The Secret We Keep.
A figure waits patiently in the entrance of the structure. Half of her body is defined by a medical drawing that visually describes the human vascular system. She is painted with soft warm hues that are delicate, personal, and vulnerable. The palms of her hands are open and facing the viewer. This is the most beautiful and disarming moment in the piece as it expresses a gestural truthfulness that is felt.
The outer edges of the work are symmetrically defined by floral kaleidoscopes that become vascular beds, which feed the viewer a breath of oxygen, and pumps blood to the center of the work. Foliage and vines climb up the face of building, and saturated yellow billows upward into the sky. The yellow appears to be flowers that rise out of the boundaries of a collaged window. These flowers are a testament to the spiritual truth that one thing can become many things, as they unfold into a reflective light that is successively passed from the sky, to cascade down the figures body where it finds its most evident moment over the figures heart.
