Review by Charley Cano
It’s that place where language is transcended, where time and distance are non-existent. It’s there that we begin to understand one another.
It’s those moments in life that are beyond describing which still pull us out of ourselves. Wonder, confusion, curiosity all drift upon breezes. Loss and struggle traverse oceans. Love crosses the sky, shaking the world with thunder and lightning.
In Petra Lea’s art, it’s only you and I in the universe, when there is no you nor I. There is only experience. There is memory, acceptance, an earned wisdom. There is the electric shock of being, and the eternal hungered search for beauty amid chaos.
It’s when we stop exploring this life that we begin to lose it. If we fail to see with fresh eyes daily, to listen to or sniff the wind, we lose its value. It’s that way with art, as well, and the best part about it is there’s always something amazing and new to discover.
Ms. Lea also greatly excels at pop art and collages. She exhibits and enjoys a fast-growing audience and collector list worldwide.
