"TRANSLUCENT SOULS" ARE ABOUT VISUAL ARTISTS TELLING THEIR STORIES. WE USE WORDS, BUT OFTEN THE MOST IMPORTANT THINGS REMAIN UNSPOKEN. THE ARE TRANSFERRED ONTO A CANVAS, PAPER, PHOTOGRAPH. THEY ARE TAKING SHAPE IN A SCULPTURE OR INSTALLATION.
BUT CAN YOU REALLY SEE THE SOUL OF AN ARTIST? STAY SILENT, WATCH CLOSELY AND ENTER OUR WORLD.
THIS ONLINE EXHIBIT IS A CELEBRATION OF OUR ABILITIES TO EXPRESS ALL WHILE SAYING NOTHING.
