"A Profound Reality" Volume 1
by Erin Walker
“A Profound Reality” is an ongoing project of works that tell stories drawing attention to aspects of ourselves that hold a greater meaning.
Consisting of paintings, drawings, photography, and film— “A Profound Reality” speaks on how we fit into the world. We are more than just the labels and checkboxes forced on us. There is a part of everyone that is beyond simple comprehension. When this reality becomes clear to you, it then becomes your duty to walk in it. You are no longer asking permission to be yourself, but proclaiming this as fact by saying, “I AM”.
We live in a world where specific populations are constantly silenced, targeted, and murdered at higher rates. History tells of the trauma that stripped these groups of their self confidence. Those who find their voice are feared and abused on numerous levels because they have a deeper understanding of themselves and the world around them. Having knowledge of self is a power that allows for elevation in every aspect of one's life.
This project is intended to bring out that profoundness in the audience. Understanding that there is something within us, far beyond the physical and material aspect, that can bring about positive change in our lives.
