About EYE OF THE LAMB:

https://i2.wp.com/gutenberg.net.au/ebooks04/0400461h-images/0400461h-16.jpg

Gertrude Margaret Lowthian Bell

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gertrude_Bell
She has been called the female Lawrence of Arabia, which, while not inaccurate, fails to give Gertrude Bell her due.
She was at one time the most powerful woman in the British Empire: a nation builder, the driving force behind the creation of modern-day Iraq.

X

1920’s Baghdad is brought to life as we hear the story of
Gertrude Bell’s
improbable transformation
from Victorian aristocrat to “Queen” of Iraq.

X

A death-defying, globe trotting adventurer, Gertrude Bell
(played by Annie Enneking)
tells us how she gained “Personhood” in the Arabian Peninsula
and drew the borders of modern day Iraq.

X

EYE OF THE LAMB
takes a frank look at British Imperialism in the Middle East
and the contradictory woman
who played a pivotal role in colonization,
while simultaneously fighting against it.

Catherine L. Johnson is an interdisciplinary artist.

Her PRIVATE RHYTHM triptych was selected for the production of
EYE OF THE LAMB
because of the wide exploratory nature of her work and the artist’s resonance to
Bell’s maverick character/”personhood”.

INTERNAL UNIVERSE/EXTERNAL UNIVERSE

THE DIVINING ROD OF THE ARTIST

 X

The Yellow Night: RISE portfolio

X

X

emerged FOUR months

in advance of the brilliant + breathtaking

Venus transit across the Sun.

X

X

X

X

X

The resonance and the echo

of my

improvisational composition 

was not informed

by

 any knowledge of the

upcoming temporal event

in our  shared

Universe.

X

X

X

X

Yet,

my art was/is a stunning

private harbinger

of what was to become

a global experience

in the vault of our heavens.

X

X

X

X

X

X

X

X

MY ART IS A HARBINGER.

X

X

X

X

X

X

MY ART PRESENTS THE

RADAR + SONAR OF MY SENSES:

THE SONG IS HEARD IN THE DISTANCE,

A PEARL RISES + TAKES SHAPE

ALL

FROM THE HEIGHTS + DEPTHS OF MY SOUL.

X

X

X

X

X

X

X

X

Listening, listening listening to the sound

of the silver clarion, hymn, gospel + murmur within me…

 X

X

X

X

X

X

X

X

X

X

X

The Yellow Night: Rise portfolio

is a visual symphonic poem

of the beauty + mystery

of  our internal + external galaxy.

MOON PHASES

SPIRALS

are expressions of creativity.

They are often found in the natural growth pattern of many organisms

and

suggest the process of growth and evolution.

Spirals convey ideas of fertility, birth, death, expansion, and transformation.

They are cycles of time, life, and the seasons

and

are a common shape in religious and mystical symbolism.

Spirals move in either direction and represent returning

to the same point on life’s journey with new levels of understanding.

They represent trust during change,

the release of energy and maintaining flexibility through transformation.

Clockwise spirals represent projection of an intention

and

counterclockwise spirals the fulfillment of an intention.

Double spirals can be used to symbolize opposing forces.

suddenly

unveil
