Seven Thunders by Julia Vining is an abstract mixed media painting based on images from Hurricane Sandy's devastation in New York. In these pieces, I focused on the twisted lines found in gnarled rebar, contorted car bodies and tangled homes. Bits of collage have been woven into unexpected areas of the paintings, adding to the overwhelming sense of chaos and fragmentation. 

Within the mayhem and wreckage that these pieces ultimately depict, there is also a sense of continuity - each line joining another, vibrant planes of color flowing together - symbolizing the harmony and rebuilding that inevitably returns after disaster.
