My work is an on going investigation of ways to stimulate social change for protecting our communities and the natural environment of the Earth from destructive practices. The Gentle Revolution Manifesto, I wrote in 2006, presents the values that inform my work. (See my website for details, www.remediosrapoport.com) I want to stimulate the viewers' eyes and minds with great beauty and ideas. Inspiring them to participate in making our communities and world more beautiful, healthy, and sustainable. My paintings are sometimes assemblage as I paint with any media or material appropriate for the concepts of each piece. Often these pieces become elaborate and finely crafted utilizing sign painting, gilding, oil painting, and acrylic painting, onto wood or metal shaped panels, other media, collage or found objects. They are hand drawn, cut, sculpted, painted, gilded and finished to perfection. Intending to share my work and ideas with a broad diverse range of people. I now have cards and signed prints of my original work so almost anyone can afford my art. Smaller original art is also available to view or purchase at street events or by appointment at my studio. I'm currently working on a series of paintings Sacred Earth, Holy Water (due for viewing in 2016) from wilderness areas of the Olympic National Forest. My intense love of our Earth is a sacred refuge for me.
