October- November 2017
Various pieces from Kin as well as some newer works were displayed on the walls Monk's coffee shop, a beloved local establishment in Downtown Abilene.
June 28 - August 12, 2017
This body of work presented within Kin is a deeply introspective journey, which seeks to divulge the artist’s dialogue with nature. In seeking to derive from nature the very mediums the work is created with; a deepened sense of understanding has followed and is the gnosis of the exhibition itself. Within the work, I wish to express the relationship I have been growing into with the local biome, as well as newly established understandings of other environments in Texas and throughout the Southwest (New Mexico, Colorado, Utah) by presenting each piece/series as a visual compendium of my personal ‘digestion’ of existence to the viewer and, hopefully, to expound upon the the commonalities and connections each bioregion holds within themselves, offering them as a reflection of humanity itself. - Larla Morales
