Pantea Karimi selected for San Jose’s Holding the Moment exhibition at San Jose Airport.

Pantea Karimi’s poster California Healing,  featuring her stylized depiction of the medicinal native herb Yarrow ,was selected for Holding the Moment, a group art exhibition  representing the City of San Jose. The exhibition venue is the San Jose airport from Nov 2020-April 2021 and is comprised of the work of painters, muralists, graphic artists, photographers, and poets who address themes that reflect on sheltering in place, scenes from quarantine and its’ impact on the individual, community & society,  and the evolving meanings of community in this unprecedented time.

Yarrow, is a hardy pest and drought resistant plant that grows throughout the Bay Area. It  has been used for thousands of years to treat many conditions, as it has anti-bacterial qualities, improves circulation, and promotes clearing of the respiratory tract. Pantea’s colorful and abstracted depiction of this “multi-talented” herb promotes the connection between the environment and healing, reiterating the interconnectedness of plants and animals. The poster received an award of special distinction among the exhibitors.

The original artwork from which the poster design was adapted from, Endemic Healing iii, Yarrow, CA , is available as a limited edition print on linen photo paper. Available for purchase in our store  .

Some characters I don’t admire so much, as much as I wish they’d put their pants back on…

Some friends of mine are philosophical in nature, like my college roommate, who skulks around with all sorts of excuses…he’s a lovable, verbose loser. He’s still fun to hang around with…

As much as I find these folks fascinating on their own, when you put two people together, things get interesting.
