Entitled Web of Stars, Camille Rose Garcia’s new solo exhibition at Corey Helford Gallery features 14 small and intimate painted musings on the connection of all things creating the universe simultaneously. This interconnectedness of the universe, from the largest planets to the tiniest insects, and how every piece of the universe is involved in creating the magic of itself has become a primary focus lately of Garcia’s work. From Maya, the weaver of the Universe, we get the symbolism of the Spider weaving a web that connects all living things, the web representing the patterns and vibration. This body of work also continues Garcia’s exploration of music and space with the relationship of sound to form.

The palette of the paintings is limited to greens, blues, and blacks, to represent the force of life (green and blues) forming itself out of the blackness of space. These are also the colors of night, the colors of dreams, and the colors of intuition. Animal symbols and Planetary Deities work together on the weaving together of the Universe. In “Neptune Transmitter” (pictured below), Despina, the embodiment of one of the 13 moons of Neptune, calls forth the other moons, arranging them in orbit around the ice planet.
