ORIENTATION - Solespace, Oakland, CA 2013
Orientation relates to one’s position with reference to time, space, people and spirit. In his new body of work, Oree explores personal self awareness and empowerment. His paintings form together geometric shapes that illuminate with a spectra of resplendent colors. Within these patterns, primal symbolic shapes and figures evoke a dualistic element that allows the viewer to explore a sense of alignment. Through color and symbolism, Orientation arouses an examination into our several identities, conditions, histories, and directions, aiming to affirm personal empowerment.
