"I know that within my heart and soul peace prevails and is spoken in many languages".
FUSING ART, HEALING AND WEAVING PEACE THROUGH ART
"I choose to use the words "Peace Prevails" vs. "May Peace Prevail" because the word "May" implies an unknown time in the future. When the wording "Peace Prevails" is used, our consciousness of Peace is in the present time. What we focus on is what we each individually experience in our lives. I choose peace."-Catherine Foster
Art, harmony and peace have been the driving forces in my artwork. The concept of weaving has been integrated in my work for over 40 years. Many artists search for that special technique, finished work of art. For me, working in metal gave me the luminous quality I have searched for. Painting on metal creates a rich glowing surface that draws you in with its internal energy, texture and colors. The luminous surface of the metal radiates the inner glow of the human soul as it weaves relationships with self, the environment and the world as symbols of our existence. I call it “Living Art, as it changes with the light from morning to night.
The Peace Prevails Project was woven metal embossed with words of "Peace" and "Peace Prevails" in over 350 different languages. The many colors portray diversity in our world. For this project, Fred and I designed many sizes of weavings, 3D wall art, the Kimono Series, peace waves and more.
