Wrestling for Freedom
The name says it all. For those of us who stayed small for a long time, the fight to take up space and become yourself can feel like a wrestling. It is a messy, imperfect process, but it is possible to experience freedom in time. There can be a beautiful, explosive energy to freedom or a determined stability. Either way, it is wild and it is good.
The BitterSweet Art Collection
Art creates a wonderful visual language to process and express emotions beyond words. The colors and images in my mind are often influenced by nature and emotion. In the BitterSweet Collection I use earthy, gritty organic mixed media to communicate the emotional BitterSweetness of life. Earthy turmeric, paprika and natural amber shellac are gritty but beautiful in their own right. The muted colors communicate sadness, while the large expressive marks communicate energy and even joy. The ways in which I move the paint are both intuitive and planned, a beautiful marriage of both control and spontaneity.
