Ballay Gallery Soft Opening – Featuring ‘Cotton Canyon’

As I pondered the use of “Soft Opening” to describe the unlocking of my store links to the public, I ended up focusing on the definition of the word ‘soft’. Interestingly, ‘soft’ has multiple definitions depending on the context in which it’s used. Fortunately, the primary definition applies to both to this phrase and one of my art pieces, ‘Cotton Canyon’.

The first definition of the word soft is “easy to mold, cut, compress, or fold; not hard or firm to the touch.” My website is in a state now where I can still mold it without too much public interference. You may notice some rough edges and minor changes of refinement during this soft opening period, but I hope any bumps you experience will be buffered by what you read and experience within the Ballay Gallery.

‘Cotton Canyon’ can certainly communicate the dramatic contrast between soft and hard edges of our society, or simply, just life in general! Look close though, and there is still hope within as the soft clouds above help protect us. ‘Cotton Canyon’ was ironically created from a photograph I took on top of the Grand Canyon. As I looked down in awe at the massive depth of the canyon filled with endless sharp edges of cliffs, I also felt comforted by the vastness of the cloud-filled sky above as far as the eye could see. The clouds settled on top of the canyon like a soft blanket. The contrast was inspiring to experience and the story I share with colors and contrast in ‘Cotton Canyon’, underscoring life and its extremes for the good and bad.
