An Art + Apparel Design Show

Featuring the captivating works of The Artist L.Haz and Wolf Delux, Parallel Perspectives celebrates the intricate beauty of sacred geometry and its manifestation in both visual art and apparel design.

Each artist's works reveal the inherent harmony and interconnectedness found in geometric patterns and shapes. From mesmerizing fractals to intricate mandalas, each piece offers a unique perspective on the universal language of geometry and its profound symbolism.

From contrasting angles to complimentary conceptions, this exhibit showcases the rich tapestry of interpretations and understandings, each existing independently yet interconnected like parallel lines.

This program is part of our Black Thought for Black Futures summer of programming, supported in part by The Maven Collaborative.

Black Thought for Black Futures is a series of ARTE NOIR programs and activations that encourage forward (or future) thinking. These programs celebrate the creativity and brilliance demonstrated by people from throughout the African diaspora throughout time immemorial and advance the well-being of the Black community through the arts.

MEET THE ARTISTS

Zahyr.jpg

Zahyr Lauren, also known as The Artist L.Haz, creates in order to share light and love with community. Each piece is a time period of meditative peace for Zahyr. All of Z's artwork is hand-drawn.

Z is the youngest of four siblings from San Jose, California. Z comes from a powerful, southern Black matriarchy that migrated from Oklahoma and Mississippi to California with nothing and made something for generations to come. Z is a West Coast-based artist, humanstorian, and community attorney who began drawing in 2015.

 

The practice of meditative art, for Z, has become a mental and emotional salve, helping to cope with the trauma of coming from the injustice system’s most heavily targeted community. The practice provides a meditative reprieve from the world and the artist hopes the work engulfs other people in the same kind of peace that was felt during each work’s creation.
