The show serves as the ultimate culmination of an eventful past year and a half for both artists, whose tireless work and creative breakthroughs resulted in their most ambitious and inspired artistic pursuits yet.
The exhibition title, 11-11 Synchronicity, alludes to a strong connection between two individuals, though they may be seemingly different. Within the tenets of numerology, “1” is considered a powerful number for manifestation while the repeated presence of “11” is an especially auspicious sign or “angel number”. Stylistically, LeCrue and Konstance are very different in aesthetic and execution, yet the two artists are synchronized by intention; to “beautify the streets” and usher positive energy into existence through fearless creative expression that enriches the community and speaks to a greater purpose.
“Seeing 11:11 is a signal, an internal reminder that I am present and moving forward,” LeCrue says about the theme. “It visualizes the path of my highest form of power and keeps me grounded in between the intuition of truth and faith of direction. It’s a compass, a road sign. It’s a paragraph that is written within a sentence that is written in numbers. It clears distraction and screams: ‘All that was taught is not all that is real, and all that was real is not all that is me.’ It reminds me to keep steady, stay persistent, keep working, keep creating your existence.”
Alternatively, Konstance, a member of the Little Band of Ottawa Indians, draws inspiration from her indigenous heritage. “I come from a long line of artists, healers, and storytellers. Family tradition is infused in my work. The Goddezzes that come forth in my ongoing Goddezz Projekt represent nature, tree medicine, and eternal beauty; all grounded in the present. The Ancient Today,” she explains. “My work for this show, depicts the ‘Infinite Goddezz’ form in every aspect. They represent women that I admire, and their stories. The energy passed down through my family for generations. The works in the show specifically honor my sisters, nieces, mother, and grandmothers. These are the most important women in my life. And their energy, rather our energy, is something I want to share with you. BE A LOVER.”
In the addition to the original works exhibited, both artists will have prints and branded merchandise for purchase.
