“Engaging Palestine” is a digital illustration by Candy Kuehn, created for Craig Harris’ SenseAbility, a multimedia performance that combines insights from experiences in contemporary West Bank, Palestine, and stories about the Prophet Elijah from the Old Testament. The show is about individual and community responsibility and accountability, exploring how our personal experiences and cultural narratives help us navigate our ongoing struggle to make the world a better place.

SenseAbility weaves music and visual textures with Harris’ memories of Bethlehem and new family connections in the West Bank. An immersive sensory landscape surrounds the audience with the sounds, sights, smells, tastes… even the touch and feeling revealed in the visceral experience that is inescapable in a life under sustained occupation.

  • How is destiny revealed in the face of scarcity and uncertainty?
  • How is resilience, even joy, possible under such challenging circumstances?
  • Can we imagine the Prophet Elijah as another sojourner on our pathway toward greater understanding?

Despite a constant struggle to be one’s best self in the malaise of loneliness, doubt and oppression, Elijah beckons us to take up our mantle and discover what is possible.

About Candy Kuehn Digital Illustrations

Candy Kuehn provides the following insights into her printing process to assist in producing the best results for printing and/or framing these prints: “I use Digital Fine Papers when printing my work. My favorites are Innova, Hahnemulle, Cansons  Infinity and Epson Fine Art Papers. My large works use roll papers – Epson Premium Photo Luster or Epson Legacy Baryta. My print files fit sizes A3 (13” x 17”) and A4 (17” x 22”), though some files are designed for larger formats. I download ICC profiles and follow prompts to install the profiles from the paper’s manufacturer’s guidelines. I use Adobe Photoshop as my go to editing program. I also test on one piece of paper; print and cancel; then try another setting turning the paper upside down, print and cancel until I am satisfied with the print results. (If you have a photo editing program, strips can be done that way as well.) For professional online printing, two options are Shutterfly.com and snapfish.com. I also use local professional art printers in Minneapolis, such as Artist Resource Group (artist-grp.com). Owner Terry Schopper’s knowledge is exceptional and brilliant.”

Please allow 4-6 weeks for printing and shipping of prints. Prints are often printed on demand, and we need to coordinate schedules with our high quality artwork printers. Please contact us about any special needs and we will try to accommodate.
