O: A Gemini trying to balance the poles
Artist: Aramis O. Hamer
Jan. 2-March 16
|"Transcendence" | Aramis O. Hamer|
The “O” exhibit is a visual representation of the energy, frequency, and vibrations within the Universe that unites us all. Aramis O. Hamer uses acrylic paints, glass, and mirrors to present a path that encourages the viewer to find answers to the age-old questions within oneself: Who am I? Why are we here? etc. Through research of ancient, esoteric spirituality and traditional religions, Hamer is displaying her works inspired by concepts found in her meditations and dreams. One of Hamer’s influences said it best: “When artists give form to revelation, their art can advance, deepen, and potentially transform the consciousness of their community” - Alex Grey
Hamer is a visual artist and muralist living in Seattle. Her subject matter is inspired by the cosmos, music, nature, divine femininity, and the complexities throughout the Black culture. From a very young age she always loved to create, but at the age of fifteen, she discovered her love for acrylic paints. With the supportive art community in the Pacific Northwest, Hamer has been able to exhibit her colorful creations at many different exhibitions in the greater Seattle area including the EMP Museum, Paramount Theater, Martyr Sauce Gallery, Columbia City Gallery, and more. Hamer created the iconic purple goddess in 2016 for KEXP radio station at Seattle Center which became a catalyst to her art career. You can find many of her designs all over the city including Jimi Hendrix Park. As a self-taught artist, Hamber lets the pull of her imagination be her guide. Her adventure is just beginning, and she invites others to join her on this journey.
