Three Graces

by Cassandra Barney

This trio of figures represents Faith, Hope and Charity. Faith has a sprout rising up from her heart like the line in a song, “Faith is like a little seed if, planted it will grow.” In the center, Pandora’s box rests at Hope’s feet. If you remember the story, after evil was released from the box all that remained inside was hope. Lastly, Charity stands to the right, apron on and ready to get to work.

If You Should Leave Me

by Cassandra Barney

“I paint strong women who take chances in life,” says the artist. “They really put themselves out there by giving everything to all they do, including their relationships. I think that with such great passion comes great vulnerability. I don’t think it’s the fear of being alone, but a deep understanding of the loss of something so beautiful.”

Ex Votos: Little Expressions of Gratitude
by Cassandra Barney

Life is an ongoing series of miracles. Everyone has something to be thankful for or someone they should be saying “thank you” to. Prayers, large and small, are answered daily, sometimes without us even knowing. Ex Votos are fine art offerings commissioned as the result of an answered prayer and displayed to acknowledge an appreciation for it having happened. Today, they are most widely known as the folk art works created on tin and found in shrines across Mexico.

“These little artworks are painted out of gratitude for the miracles, protection and prayers answered not only in my life, but for many of us,” says artist Cassandra Barney. “In conceiving these, it didn’t seem that I was illustrating ideas, but sharing and exchanging them. Some are events that have happened in my life. Others are ideas that have been shared with me. Every mother has experienced the elation of holding their child for the first time and savoring that new-born baby smell. Each time I see Never Felt Joy Like That Before it is a chance to savor that feeling againand say “thank you” for letting me experience this miracle.”

Each Ex Votos celebrates the exceptional nature of the common and the uncommon: friendship, love, life, family and self. They recognize the divine nature of those things. This collection is styled with the look of the Mexican tin-paneled works and they are designed to be hung in groupings. As gifts, they are the perfect message at the perfect time. Life is full of blessings and Cassandra Barney’s Ex Votos give us the opportunity to share our recognition of this with beauty and grace. All canvases mounted on archival Gatorboard®.
