“Echoes Unveiled” Exhibition

August 2 - October 19

Arts Warehouse is pleased to present a solo exhibition by Katya Neptune

Echoes Unveiled
In the Back Room Gallery at Arts Warehouse
August 2 – October 19, 2024

Echoes Unveiled encapsulates Neptune’s two-decade journey as an Interdisciplinary Artist and Independent Curator focused on empowering emerging artists. Through engagement with these artists –  organizing group exhibitions and projects – they were able to support orphaned children in Rwanda, Africa and Cap Haitien, Haiti by raising money and awareness through events and exhibitions as a south Florida based organization called ArtHeart, founded by Neptune. The works exhibited in Neptune’s Echoes Unveiled honor the seemingly invisible, yet powerful contribution made in the lives of children across the globe.

Common throughout her work with emerging artists and also in her own art practice, Neptune navigates the intricate concept of mental health. This theme is present in the Echoes Unveiled narrative. Her personal journey in understanding and navigating mental well-being intertwines with a broader exploration of its universal relevance. Echoes Unveiled thus serves as an expression as well as a platform to foster awareness and dialogue regarding the complexities of our mental landscapes.

About the work: The mixed media works in the exhibition are portraits of women and children that Neptune captured in Rwanda, Africa in 2012 and 2014. The mixed media works use matte medium, pencil, watercolor, polyurethane, thread, sharpie, and brush markers on paper and fabric to embellish the large-scale photo-transfers of children and women. The use of watercolor to add colored areas to the black and white photos was a choice to be able to use a selected and limited color palette. Many of the color choices and placements are related to the Chakras – how each color is described and defined.

The layered portraits are installed at a high viewing point in the largescale gallery. The exhibition also includes a sculptural installation in the center of the space using wood, fabric, sand, casting material, yarn, and mica powder.
