2014: better left unsaid

Artist Statement:  This body of work is based on the intuitive nature of creating art. My previous bodies of work often focused on issues regarding gender inequality and social justice. These works contain similar mixed media techniques and elements I have developed over the years, with a revised focus on the process of creating art. Generally when developing a body of work, I concentrate on the final message I intend to express though my pieces. I then work backwards to visually meet that conscious objective.

These works were created working solely from my artistic intuition. I kept my mind open and relaxed, enjoying the process, while working to not over-think the finished work. I allowed my instinct and feelings to control my method.

When concluding each piece, I included an excerpt from stream of conscious writings I have compiled over the past several years. This text creates an additional layer of raw intuition. These excerpts add a vulnerability to my work, by expressing thoughts from the random recesses of my mind—whether mundane, revelatory or insightful. I have discovered most viewers relate to some aspect of these various texts. This allows a unique harmony between the works, the viewers and the artist.
