solo exhibition by bree poort
on view february 12 - february 19
opening night: february 12, 6 - 9 pm
The unveiling of Bree's new body of work. Bree has been exploring resin in the realm of ocean work, surfboards, photographing the earth from above in form of drone and helicopters. Opening night of Saturday, February 12th 2022 in the beautiful exhibition space set on a hill in Malibu across from Point Dume, Bree will present to the world her first big divergence of her artistic expression in her career.
"Unfolding came from the joyful struggle of searching in new mediums. In my little studio beneath our jungle home in Hawaii, I had just finished designing and writing my book "MOJO". There was a yearning to take my own advice from my book and try and flex my own "mojo" into a new body of work. As I tried to avoid the use of resin, I played with different colors, textures and compositions I never had before. Exploring figurative subjects, landscapes, metal and ceramic work, sculptural work kept calling to me. Resin was the only medium I knew well, and I found myself undeniably drawn to the aerial view."
"The works that came to be, took form in my exploration of sensuality, the concept of time, and complete freedom. I could feel unrestrained as I sculpted."
"No expectations of myself. I could create from a place of peace. Something I hadn't truly felt since creating my ocean works for the first time in 2016. It was a feeling I had been searching high and low for the last three years."
"These works I wanted to name "A Wrinkle In Time" an ode to one of my favorite classic films from the 80's, "Somewhere In Time". These works came about during a late night in September 2021. A time in the history of the world, where the pandemic rages on still almost two years. I want the viewer of this work to feel free and unrestrained as I did, to feel a yearning for something more, to revel in the unknown."
