Water, water, everywhere, in canvas, stone, metal and wood… filled with the life force that abounds within, is the focus of the latest artwork by Tim Garcia and Robena, who will be showcasing their latest collections of artwork at Viewpoints Gallery in Makawao, beginning Thursday, November 12th with an Opening Reception starting at 5:00 pm. Their exhibit, inspired by the Ocean, has provided both artists with an inexhaustible source of beauty, power, and intrigue. Interpreting their vision with brush and chisel, both artists have approached this primordial element and unifying theme with singularly unique perspectives and preternatural abilities.
Robena, an artist known for her large-scale paintings, has titled her show ‘The Delicate Sea', and Tim Garcia, a sculptor, is titling his efforts 'Ocean Rhythms – Feminine Forms'. Individually, the strength of their collections is impressive, however, collectively, they're extraordinary, as one is visually transported into another world filled with awe and wonder. This is not your typical foray into smiling turtles and choreographed dolphins.
Both artists find solace, sport, and fascination in the world beneath the sea, and through their artistic efforts, have created a world of allure, attraction, and beauty. By isolating specific elements within this immeasurable treasure trove, one is drawn to the complexities of some of the simplest life forms that exist in the vastness of the ocean.
