Artwork by Danielle DeRoberts, The Boulder Creative Collective
From Danielle: The Path graphic- originates from “A Union” painting series, exploring the intimate connections between the physical and non; between two sentient beings; between the metaphysical strands that unite us all. DeRoberts believes that we develop these unions on a constant basis, whether we are aware of it or not. Unions can be the simple and romantic- the love found between two people or the casual eye contact with a stranger down the street. Unions can be that between the human and the mountain and the experience found within one’s self. The Path represents the rooted connection between one organism-- Aspen Trees + Human + Soul. ::::::: Incorporating cut and sewn layers of fabric that overlap with the next. In addition, you will see transparent dye merging two forms into one and interconnected thread throughout the installations. Taking cues from her Southwestern Colorado environment, the visitor will share light desert tones, deep flowing rivers of fabric ink and the simultaneously beautiful and haunting aspen trees from high in the hills of Telluride. The split images of two different canvases unite, as one final piece.
