When we walk this life at any given moment we participate in situations that can either make us react or be proactive. Many "voices" can potentially influence and move us in those directions. But each one of us, ultimately, makes the choice of which direction we move in... And in what unique ways we decide to express those movements.

"The Thirteenth Sign and masks of god" explores the reasons we decide to wear certain masks. Each one of us is a vessel(mask) of energy. Shape shifting ourselves to work within our environments at any given moment. Through thoughts, words and then actions, we create and shape our realities. Our personal experiences being the true source of our collective evolution.

"'The Thirteenth Sign', Olucius, is the Hero Maker of the cosmos. A long count cycle sign understood from the mayan calendar teachings of José Argüelles. Planting her seeds of inspiration in order to fractal the intent of self realization and empowerment, reconnecting us with the Great Spirit, the Hunab Ku, the Galactic Core. In this show she creates our Heros who utilize music as the vehicle for the message. Music being one of the most efficient ways of communicating emotional content and messages that might otherwise be dismissed through other less effective ways of communication…like talking..." Snakebite Cortez, Co-Creator of the show states, "We'll be using many different ways of telling story and reactivating people's DNA in this installation. From very intentional multiple dance and musical performances, to the elements in the room to augmented reality, through smart phones, our expression will be multi-dimensional. Although the exhibit is up for a month, the "Last Saturday's" presentation will be a unique experience and an opportunity for those who resonate with the message and who desire to find a deeper connection with our intent. The level of talented creators associated with this show is humbling with originality and compassion. This will be something unique"

THE ART PIECE CONCEPT
An original mask was created and duplicated to hand out to multiple Los Angeles-Based Artists from many different mediums to explore the infinite expressions of one form. Echoing the human experience we all share in this particular space-time reality. Last year, 2011, Part 1 of this installation remixed Super-Heroes with alternative cultures. With performance art and original music coupled with hundreds of QR codes arranged hieroglyphically around the masks, the original exhibit explored non linear story telling to super-charge the viewers awareness of self….It was one of Petra Gallerie /SORO Social Club's most successful shows of 2011.

18 identical masks went out to 18 artists who work in the video game, fashion, design, jewelry, building, movies, animation and comic book industries and came back as a one of a kind expression of the creator. Details, textures, colors and embellishments that all reflected the soul of the artist and intent of the content.

Join us Saturday June 30, 2012 for a follow up to last years prolific installation. "The Thirteenth Sign and masks of god" Part 2: SUPERNOVAS continues to explore the masks we wear using music as the delivery's foundation.
