Life’s Equilibrium Pendants (Sun & Moon)
Silver pendants by Dene artist John Velten representing the Sun and Moon as "Life's Equilibrium." John Velten has been an illustrator from a young age, possessing over 10 years of drawing and illustrative practice, three years of fine arts production and one year of event-producing experience.
The Sun and the Moon represent that "Each day, we’re presented with the opportunity to reinvent who we are. It all begins with how we think about ourselves and our surroundings. Finding the light in the darkness is an important step to truly finding our way. Recognizing the patterns occurring before our eyes, there’s a circle that completes these connections and becomes vastly complex with time. Mindfulness and being present with ourselves helps decipher our purpose in tangent with a responsibility that comes with the power of knowing one self. "
Velten says that these pieces represent the cycles, shifts and changes that happen within each of us, and complimenting on another's energy by completing the circle.
John Velten works independently as a fine artist, within modes of expression such as, painting, carving, metal works, mixed media, 3D modelling and illustration. In the past 3 year, portions of his works have been commissioned by The City of Vancouver, Vancouver Mural Festival, Vancouver art community, Lunar Fest and Foundry BC. John’s Mixed roots stem from Europe, with German ancestry and North-West Territories with Dene ancestry. These Contrasting lineages speak to his perspective, ability as an artist and affluence of different cultures.
