2013 Oct/Nov: Topanga Canyon Gallery: October 23 thru November 17;
New works by Fereshteh Fatemi, Debbi Green, and Karrie Ross.
OPENING: Saturday, November 2nd, 2013: 4-7pm
My new series “Under the Sea” will be on display for the duration of the show. This is an exciting series and I’m caught up in the miracle of relating to being the Blue Birds Walking and Under the Sea. Water holds a magic of it’s own. I hope you will join me on the discover of what could be…under the sea.
“Elements of Life” : art representing Life as the whole, and Elements
as the parts. A belief. A journey. A fascination. Each artist shares their connection to their whole, through the arts of jewelry, painting, and mixed media.
Karrie Ross, a native to Los Angeles, finds water fascinating so went exploring “Under the Sea” with watercolor, acrylic, ink, pencil, and oil. She came across The Blue Bird of happiness and began following their journey into life. Ross illustrates the elements found with the use of her favorite symbols; the line, dot, drip, spatter and drops, embellishing the movement through their space and time. Watch them walking, surfing, flying (duh), and just standing there, waiting for you to follow them too—the leaving of footprints in the sand, marking a moment in time, and the element of surprise when the waves wash them away under the sea, to begin again.
Ross follows the universal vibration that shows up when she ponders the wonders of the world. Nothing is so small that it’s energy cannot be felt. We all have what Ross considers a personal energy and her main inquiry is “What is your energy telling the world?”

I enjoyed meeting you at the Offramp Gallery walk-thru the other day-the energy you emit lights up a space, so clear, warm and cool at the same time. I
I’d really like to see these paintings, I especially like the sense of joy in color and intent in delicacy, I hope to make it up to the curvy road to the gallery.. Please keep me posted on your shows! All my best, Nicholette
