Bursting through hued planes of existence

Time encapsulates our anticipated arrival

We always knew we belonged to this place

Our minds wondered there

Filling generous pockets with dreams

A welcome haze

Entering the atmosphere

Tied to the blaze

My new colorful, vivid geometric digital art series that celebrates places and events that hold a special place in our hearts and minds is now available on my website. Just click the blue acevesart.com link above to explore a sampling of the work. As the weeks go by, I will be adding more to “Life Quilts” so STAY TUNED. These pieces were also inspired by beautiful textiles and quilt design. You will also notice that the delicate layering of transparent photography texture and digital graphics give each piece a multidimensional feel.

Evenings quiet, ultramarine blue bathes the mountain tops in the blanket of fading memory

The world is a dangerous place for small men

Anxiously hiding beneath the coat tails of their superiors

They wait for a light shower of rain that never comes

Except in twilight dreams

Where gold crusted streets lick their heels

Each city light meets their pallid faces

With a mothers welcome warmth

Lingering there in subtle admiration

Before the weight of their hearts pulls the wealth of existence to them

This series was created in the midst of technical difficulty and software incompatibility. I subtlety layered photography, graphics and color fields to create its liquid, quilt-like appearance. I felt that though certain parts of the piece were celebratory, they like the poem above, hint at better, more affluent times that are sadly not as accessible as they used to be. While we still see parts of our world as beautiful and worthy of preservation, we find ourselves surrounded by a sci-fi utopian horror of a society that if it continues the way it is going, will unapologetically eat its youth, growth and innovation. However, this piece like the others in this series are dedicated to the hope that we can one day come together in our humanity, lovingly respect each others differences, and take back the world that once was ours to celebrate.
