The Surface of Belonging: Exploring the Spectrum from Isolation to Inter-relatedness
What healing lies beyond hurt and hate? How can we coexist, celebrating our diversity and exploring our common threads of being human? These questions initiated a journey for painter Julie Miles. Wanting to experience the spectrum of complete isolation to that of total inter-relatedness, she has made a series of paintings spanning fourteen linear feet with well over 8,000 painted lines. The color palette is comprised of a variety of skin tones to show that wherever we are, our life experiences and social conditionings shape our perceptions. Each line represents a person somewhere on this earth, with a wish that they may know love and a sense of belonging in community.
FUELING HEALING: 10% of the proceeds from sold work will benefit the Life After Hate organization, whose mission is to inspire individuals to engage in compassion and forgiveness, for themselves and for all people.
