The public is invited to a “Meet the Artist Reception” on Saturday, March 4 from 6 to 8 pm. An exhibit of their works will run from March 1 through March 25 at the Apalachicola Center for History, Culture and Art in downtown Apalachicola.
Art and Technology : the Divine Marriage
Licia and Peter Berry explore the union of opposites through their couple’s art exhibit. Emphasizing the esoteric in the mundane and exploring the sacred in the everyday, they orchestrate light in digital form to illuminate the threshold between heaven and earth. Utilizing landscape, the figure, and other earth-bound forms, their work tends towards the ephemeral when paired in electronic media with imagery of outer space, inner worlds, and inspired realities. The use of light as the bridge between matter and spirit, masculine and feminine, left brain and right brain examines this threshold as the center of sacred partnership, or Divine Union.
Licia graduated with a BFA in Art Education from Georgia State University with an art focus on the figure, later becoming inspired by traditions in mysticism and indigenous culture, as well as the Sacred Feminine. Her work marries primitive, indigenous and sacred imagery with images of star nurseries, solar systems and galaxies in our universe.
Peter graduated with a BFA in Painting and Drawing from Georgia State University under Medford Johnston, with a focus on oil painting until he became fascinated with creating 3-dimensional fractals through digital technology. He marries his landscapes and portraiture, fractals and photography in a blend of handmade and digital works. In his investigation of the interconnectivity of all things, he feels he has had a glimpse of the mind of God and the gateway to infinity.
