Arizona-based Artist's New Series Reflects on the Passing of Time and the Brevity of Life

PHOENIX - eTradeWire -- {9} The Gallery is proud to present Brianna Voron in a featured exhibition, Don't Blink, opening First Friday, September 6th, 6-10 PM at 1229 Grand Avenue, Phoenix, AZ. Don't Blink is a collection of oil paintings created over four years, reflecting Voron's fascination with the passing of time and the brevity of life.

"Two of the past four years I spent teaching elementary visual art. Becoming a teacher was one of the most formative times of my life. As I took on the daily responsibility of showing my students how to engage their hearts, minds, and hands in the making of art, they reminded me of how quickly life moves on and how delicate and vulnerable we all once were in those beginning stages. I saw myself in each of them and was humbled by them daily. Like children, we tend to think of ourselves as invincible and indispensable to the world. The truth is, life is alarmingly brief. Death is always around the corner. Time moves on with or without us. I am a small speck in the grand story of life on earth. But I have a choice to make each day. I choose to live life fully aware that it can end as abruptly and randomly as it started. Each painting reflects and illustrates this ongoing fascination that I have with life and its various stages." – Brianna Voron

Voron spends her days creating in her art studio, working in her wood shop, and wandering the American Southwest.

"Art to me is all about the process. The process of creating, and while creating, processing. In that way, it is constantly evolving, just as I am. I find inspiration in raw materials, color, nature, literature, and history." – Brianna Voron
