Healing is available to us every day, in the mundane, in symbols we see around us, and in everyday colors surrounding us. It’s in our very molecules and cells, memories, and heartbeats. It’s about how healing doesn’t happen in huge leaps and bounds – but more so cell by cell, particle by particle – within us. We slowly evolve, we slowly heal…breath by breath, day by day, one cell at a time…
The shapes in Kendras art are her imaginative visual ideas of what our cells and molecules, and their interactions, look like as we encounter the hard work of healing while simultaneously entering new states of renewal and aliveness that place us on a now different path. Her art is also about experiencing conflicting emotions, sometimes within a single moment, a concept our culture-at-large wants us to reject. Many pieces address the co-existence within us of sadness & happiness, anger & compassion, despair & accomplishment, loneliness & love.
