Arlington, Virginia – Gallery Underground’s Focus Gallery in March presents Earth Speaks, a solo exhibition by Kinda Barazi. In Earth Speaks Barazi uses mixed media on canvas to explore the questions: “Are humanoids advancing or retrogressing? Were we once a high-tech civilization, and are we now living in a virtual simulation? As humans tamper with the process of evolution, speeding extinctions, and creating organizational powers and loyalty of thousands to go to wars, when few animals do, are we truly the superior species?”
In our Main Gallery, are new works by our members, in media including oil, acrylic, pastel, watermedia, sculpture, glass, and ceramics. Gallery Underground welcomes five new members in March each with a unique and intriguing art style.
