Dreaming awake with passion

KAPA‘A — There is something about this tall woman who cannot spend one minute in a conversation without smiling and sending positive energy into the universe. Maybe it’s the young heart she carries in her chest or her eternal thirst for dancing that shines such a bright light around her.

Whatever it is, Gabriela Taylor’s energy passes on organically to her creations, shooting straight to one’s soul.

Some of the most inspiring creations of this world traveler searching for peace are now on exhibit at Art Café Hemingway, that little itsy bitsy piece of Europe encrusted in a historic building at the north end of Old Kapa‘a Town.

The exhibit, Dreaming Awake with Passion, opened June 2.

The exhibit will stay up until July 1.

Taylor said “dreaming awake” evokes images and emotions that result in creative expression.

“My sculptures of dancers are born out of my passion for dance, which allows energy to flow through my body while I’m sculpting,” Taylor said.

Some of her sculptures have half-male, half-female faces, representing yin and yang, one always changing into the other, said Taylor, comparing it to an ever-changing infinite universe of swirling energy.

Taylor has been creating ceramic sculpture for 20 years, and is a published author and travel writer who shoots and edits video to share her experiences with others.

There is something about this woman. Go find out what it is at Art Café Hemingway, but hurry, you have two weeks left.
