Here indeed is Pele, builder of land by fire…

Inspired by the constant re-awakening of the volcano Kilauea on the island of Hawai’i, this work brings the feeling of the force of the natural world. When creating this piece I played with how to bring life to this work; the illusion of magma pouring out of the womb of the volcano. The rich layering and texture give this feeling of formation and eruption. Because I work digitally, texture and depth and the illusion of them both are crucial to my work. 

Let this piece inspire you. Allow this space you exist in to light your fire so that you can impact the space around that affects you. We are both inspired by life and inspiring life around us. With this we are reminded that we are a part of the cycle of destruction and resurrection of nature. Creation and destruction happening simultaneously with every inhale and exhale.

ABOUT THE ARTIST

Brennan Alexa is a Connecticut-born artist, who is currently based in Honolulu. She has her bachelor's degree in Studio Art from Allegheny College and has been working as a professional artist since 2020. Her current focus in her artistic pursuit is her digital collaging. 

Inspired by Matisse in the cut-out pieces he made during the end of his life, she creates digital prints that give the feel and impression of depth and texture in a 2-dimensional plane. She renders deeply spiritual works with a focus on the awe of nature and interpersonal relationships. Her work always features the balance of dichotomies; male female, light and dark, to celebrate the need for balance in the world and in ourselves. After years of covid-induced isolation the need to reconnect and rediscover a sense of belonging feels crucial in the artist. 

With this body of work printed on mounted canvas by 529 Print Company and Afromisia framework custom made by Windswept Homes Brennan celebrated the work of many local hands that contributed to these pieces' final form. The process itself is a reminder of the value of collaboration especially on the local level. She blends powerfully charged images reminiscent of the islands natural beauty from the three works, “Awakened,” “Mauna,” and “Birth of a Volcano” and the quiet exchange that exists in the work “Universe Within You,” a comment on the depth of partnerships in this body of work.
