From Violence to Hope (New Abstract Pastel) by Polly Castor

This most recent concept piece of mine was done for a collaboration between the Cultural Alliance of Western Connecticut and the Women’s Center in Danbury for their initiative to use the arts to explore issues of domestic violence and sexual abuse, and to a inspire discussion that expedites hope. 

My piece is titled from Violence to Hope and it is 20″x30.” It is done in pastel on a textured ground. Violence certainly tenaciously grabs attention, but if we are able to look for it, hope continues to shine.

You can buy prints or merchandise of this piece in my gallery here. You can see the entire work above and close up details below.

I work to amplify good wherever I find it. I love color, texture, beauty, great ideas, nature, metaphor, deliciousness, genuine spirituality, and exploring new territory. I encourage authenticity, nurture creativity, champion sustainability, promote peace, and hope to foster a new renaissance where we all are free to be our most fulfilled, multifaceted, and terrific selves.
