Eleutheromania –(n.) An intense and irresistable desire for freedom.
This art exhibit expresses freedom through the medium of mixed media collage. A self- taught artist, I pay extreme attention to details. The quest for freedom has many forms as shown in this collection of art. By combining cloth, metal, glass, paper, cement, wood, among other materials, the narrative becomes a visual story. The connective element is the journey and deep desire to not be labeled, or boxed in any specific form.
Throughout history, up to our present day, people are fighting for their individual freedom. Elusive as it can be, the desire to be free cannot be contained by the dictates or constraints of society. In seeking freedom we break through whatever binds us. Physically, mentally and spiritually, we were not created to be restricted beings, we were meant to fly.
Phoenix Rising is an undiluted desire for freedom. It joins concrete to feathers, cloth to paint to tell its story. 146,000 Days/ 400 years depicts the Middle Passage and the unanswered stain of slavery which remains unresolved. The Midwife was born a slave but spent her life bringing babies into the world. I am part of her lineage birthing my babies as art. The dignity of Mrs. Bivens reflects her freedom and the goddess within.
Midnight Dance is a slow musical groove on glass that flows unrestricted, shining bright. The images each tell their story in an interactive experience. Here are a few stories of strength, of balance, grace and eleutheromania, the absolute, intense, desire for freedom.
May you embrace this artistic expression of removing whatever binds your spirit and learn to fly.
Pat Goodman, 2019
The symbolic meaning of the phoenix is about renewal. The phoenix is about overcoming darkness and rising to the challenge to become powerful and succeed. Is the ultimate symbol of strength and renewal. As both a fire and solar symbol, the phoenix animal guide is symbolic of the sun, which “dies” in setting each night only to be reborn in rising the next morning.
