"OUR HOUSE" Opens November 11th 6-8pm at Joshua Tree Art Gallery 61607 29 Palms Hwy. Joshua Tree, Ca.
"Our House" is Watson's first one man show at JTAG. The "Our House" series
is a metaphor for that uniting of the soul with the body. These large scale oil paintings invite you into a space that feels nuturing as if you had found home.
Two components, a triangle and a square, along with all of its symbolism, are united
to create something effusive. A simple depiction of a house, a structure we live in,
represents a soul in a body. Something that is confined or contained,
yet retains its connection to the unconfined or eternal.
Watson is the son of O.J. Watson an illustrator, who was his artistic mentor and Barbara Ammon was a spiritual mentor over the last 35years. They were both were major influences in his life and inspired the current work.
This series portrays a transformation that takes place within
the series, as a whole. It is a summary of his experiences and he has tried to
present it in the most elementary way possible.
