About the event
Synergy & Serenity proudly concludes the residency of Brandon Slewion, a talented local and native DC artist, with the unveiling of the captivating exhibition titled "The Scenic Route." This exhibition serves as a visual narrative, taking viewers on an evocative journey through the artist's postpartum experience—transcending not only into fatherhood but also navigating the intricate pathways of manhood.
"The Scenic Route" delves into the profound and transformative moments of arriving at fatherhood, encapsulating the artist's quest to redefine spirituality and beauty in this newfound chapter of life. Slewion invites the audience to witness the intricate process of returning to the community, emphasizing the significance of leaning on and healing with one's village. The exhibition resonates with the essence of communal support, illustrating the strength found in vulnerability and shared experiences.
Central to the exhibition is the exploration of the black man's experience in this poignant journey—each brushstroke and hue expressing the nuanced emotions and complexities of fresh fatherhood. Slewion's artistic prowess shines through in the vivid portrayal of developing new skin, symbolizing the shedding of old perceptions and embracing the growth that comes with this transformative phase.
"The Scenic Route" not only captures the personal narrative of Slewion but also invites the audience to reflect on their own journeys of growth, community, and self-discovery. The exhibition is a testament to the power of art in evoking emotions, fostering understanding, and celebrating the diverse narratives that contribute to the rich tapestry of life.
