Soleé Darrell's CLOUDBURST at Rare Device by Hanna Moradi on Vimeo.
Rare Device is pleased to announce our latest gallery exhibition, Cloudburst by Soleé Darrell.
"Cloudburst" is a group of works completed during quarantine. A Cloudburst is an extreme amount of precipitation in a short period of time that is often unpredictable. The bubble of our fragile society has burst and we are left to pick up the pieces and move forward against greater natural forces. Taking the time to listen to what mother nature has to teach us, these works are a visual representation of the chaos and quiet beauty that comes with sudden change. With “Cloudburst”, we will examine what it means to be human in 2020; a great time of sorrow and a time of vast possibility.
Oakland-based artist Soleé Darrell explores the experience and depth of being a human in today's world. Each stroke encompasses color, vulnerability, passion, texture, and complete faith in the universe. She uses layers of mixed media to symbolize the healing of wounds and maps the unknown paths we take in life. She is forever fascinated with the idea of things we can never know about our existence and the self-inflicted suffering that human beings can endure through generations of trying to figure it out. Her hope is to bring some optimism to the viewer and bridge the gap between the intuitive world and the physical world.
