Nine artists from eight different countries take a global look at concepts of universal existence, the ephemeral, nostalgia, spiritual transcendence, and ancestry. Each artist performs an act of self-understanding and healing that leads to a sense of balance and peacefulness within their work. Inspired in Madhavan Palanisamy’s series titled Our Souls Are Made of Stardust, the exhibition utilizes a Carl Sagan quote as a point of departure: “We are a way for the universe to know itself. Some part of our being knows this is where we came from. We long to return. And we can, because the cosmos is also within us. We’re made of star stuff.” This quote is the essential understanding of our universal existence and our connection to our surroundings – a symbiosis of the physical and meta-physical worlds. The presentation involves a variety of media from painting, photography, installation, embroidery, video, and sculpture.

As an artist Momilani uses intuition, inspiration, discipline, dance and play. In each painting, she strives for exquisite detail as well as movement through the piece as a whole. Her visual art is influenced by musical improvisation, with the interplay of lines creating dissonance and resolving into consonance. She creates many layered-textures, enlivened by contrasting sections, and varied forms. Her use of color is bold with entwined and distinctive, twists and complements.
She draws inspiration from her photography of nature, the desert, trees and plants and the vibrant interplay of shape and light. Her paintings are created through a process of internal dialogue with the painting – she watches the play of colors and shapes, sometimes for hours. Layers are begun, and a painting allowed to form itself over weeks or months of reflection.
As a composer and inventor, she holds a patent for her MIDI glove which she created to control the computer in real-time. She has a Ph.D. in electronic music and performs unique improvisations using voice interacting with her art using the MIDI glove controlled computer. She has performed and given presentations at seminars, festivals and conferences in San Diego, San Francisco, Missouri, New York, Hawaii, Singapore, and Japan.
