After four months and thirteen states, The Nomadic Project
was faced with a major roadblock when their vehicle, serving as home
and office for the traveling artists, was put out of commission.
Despite the set back, Kristin Abraham and Alfonso Llamas, returned to
the road to unite Arizona to thirteen other states.
The Nomadic Project
designed by Kristin Abraham and Alfonso Llamas is connecting the
country through art, spending about a week in each state. The fine
artist and musician designed their Honda Element to serve as a home and
workspace for an entire year. In Tucson, Arizona, all plans hit the
windshield, after being plowed into by another driver.
After several days of debating with insurance companies, Abraham and
Llamas were able to continue the journey in a rental car until
returning to Tucson, in about three weeks, to retrieve their repaired
vehicle. “Giving up was not an option. We couldn’t turn our
backs on the thirteen states already committed. But most of all, we
believe too strongly in the purpose of this project to allow a car
accident to stop the The Nomadic Project
On March 28th, Terbush Gallery
, located in Sedona, Arizona, became a part of The Nomadic Project
by displaying the painting The Automaton vs. The Existentialist
This makes Arizona, the fourteenth state to be connected; proving that
with determination comes reward. The couple is now headed for
California, where the Arizona-inspired painting will be placed.
The Automaton vs. The Existentialist
is an acrylic on canvas painting that is inspired by New Mexico, but
painted in Arizona. With this concept, inspiration is pulled from one
state and left in the next, blurring borders and connecting the
country. The Terbush Gallery
is represents Arizona by displaying the piece until November of 2006.
During this time, each painting in the Nomadic Series can be purchased
at a special price of $910, and the owner will receive an engraved
nameplate to be displayed with their piece during display.
