Join us for a special art installation at The Well Yoga Co-Op!
August 11, 2018 6 pm – 9 pm
The Well Yoga Co-Op and performance space present ‘The Woman on The Beach’, an immersive experience of watercolors, silver sculptural adornments and musical experience by artists Holly Overton and Hanna Katarina. Holly is from Nags Head and her best friend and collaborator, Hanna, is from Truckee, CA. They live in Brooklyn, NY where their friendship has evolved into a visual and spiritual dialogue through shared travel experiences, studies of arcane knowledge, and interest in ancient ideologies and aesthetics.
Holly Anita Overton is a musician and painter based in Brooklyn, NY from Nags Head, NC, with a BFA in Fine Arts from Parsons School of Design. She relishes in joy and works through sorrow in her bird's eye view apartment by composing on piano and painting watercolors. Her movement of brush and application of paint channel raw emotion and thought, softly or with aggression. In a safe space in nature where no one is watching, the female nude can express what is felt without being sexualized. Holly's musical compositions are sounds from pop / rock to the romantic era in theatrical form, sincere and sensual, evoking our shared awareness. Informing her expressions are her studies of the Natural Law. She is an active participant and performer in Brooklyn music since 2009 and has toured nationally and internationally, releasing 2 solo EP’s and 2 solo albums.
Hanna-Katarina Edwards is a jeweler, sculptor and alchemist living and working in Brooklyn, NY from Truckee, CA. She utilizes ancient techniques and exploratory processes to create surfaces and textures that arrive from the subconscious. The forms mimic shapes of the natural world and reflect light. The metal is manipulated to enhance the material itself and show the natural beauty. Each piece of jewelry is crafted from scratch. The granules are melted into an ingot, melted and rolled in to sheet form, and colorized by techniques of marriage of metals, fusing, foiling, and patination. The body becomes the altar, a canvas for art in motion. Her current collection are symbols and reflections of water, earth, sky, and air, to depict the elements within the metal, to draw a story with the torch as a paintbrush. Silver, her material of choice, in ancient cultures, is the element thought to act as a talisman, to provide protection for the wearer, by reflecting light and therefore deflecting harm. She propose that by wearing and reflecting light, we ourselves become light, and reflect the elements that make us too, heavenly bodies.
