Artist’s Reception 5:30-7 on Friday March 7 – “Art @ the #9″
Artist’s Statement: What I create is a specific emotion preserved in a visual medium. Just as emotions are not always discrete, but are often a mix, so is my artwork. The inspiration for my art comes from my subconscious and from music. Like Carl Jung’s “Dream Drawings,” Kandinsky’s efforts to convey music visually, or Henry van de Velde’s search for enticing lines, I blend mental and physical elements to produce timeless, beautiful artworks. When beginning a work, I either have a specific plan or freely allow my subconscious, paired with emotion and music, to reveal an artwork. I am pioneering my own style through pen and ink, but am eager to blend different mediums together. I produce art because, I believe, it is an essential part of having a fulfilling life. My aim is to create art that motivates, entertains, makes my viewers question, and ultimately brings a feeling of contentment.
