Aaron Sheldon came to us last year to ask if he could take a photo at WAKE & SHAKE and promote his kickstarter. One year later, we're excited to host Aaron's first gallery show, "Small Steps Are Giant Leaps."
The idea of "Small Steps Are Giant Leaps" came to me while I was riding the bus with my four year old son. What was a normal, everyday event to me had him completely transfixed. Seeing that look of amaze-ment on his face at something so commonplace really struck me. In that moment I realized that my son is an explorer, and the world that I take for granted, to him, is an amazing place filled with new sites and experiences. I knew then that I wanted to somehow document his journey of exploration.
WHITE BLOOM BLOOM
Flagging tape, chicken wire, light
The Wild Goose Creative Board of Directors purchased White Bloom Bloom in May of 2015 during the #wildartcolumbus Live Auction.
Designed and installed by Dana Lynn Harper.
Dana Lynn Harper is currently based in Columbus, OH. Her practice ranges from large installations to small paintings and sculptures. Harper is inspired by natural formations, from large landscapes to infinitesimal plankton and pollen. Using overpowering color, inviting textures and an overall multi-sensory experience, the works act as a portal to warm feelings and childhood fantasy, a social catalyst for interaction and connection. Playful patterns, dancing tinsel and unapologetic fluorescent colors are not only a testament to the beauty of life, but to the ever-encompassing joy of living. In 2014, Harper was the recipient of The ArtFile Emerging Artist Grant as well as an ArtPrize Artist Seed Grant. Last year at The Ohio State Fair’s Fine Art Exhibition, she received Best in Show as well as The People’s Choice Award. She has been an artist and residence at BUNKERprojects in Pittsburgh, PA as well as Second Sight Studio in Columbus, OH.
