Through it all I RISE! | An Exhibit by Keith Tolen

Thursday, September 17, 2020 - 5:30pm to 7:00pm

A Note from Keith:

The focus of this exhibit is to show that regardless of what we do as human beings, there is a greater power. The greater power transcends all physical, even visual forms. The three faces that I have shared reflect attempts to call on higher forces. The two black and white images reflect the action of just trying to hold yourself together. You have a closeup of a face with hands placed near the face in an act of frustration, but that is not the end of the story. The blue man is symbolic of both a silhouette and a mugshot. The face is in the position of the mugshot, but that does not mean there is guilt. The use of blue with the orange background challenges the viewer to consider oppositions and possibilities. There Is an upward gaze that calls on hope as having the final word. Let's keep HOPE alive.
