Art Contests Accepted Artists
Orem, Utah USA
The process that I utilize creates form from chaos. Through that form I derive meaning. Rather than imposing an image or idea on a piece, I search for what exists in the initial layers, and help it grow. This is indicative of the importance of my connection to my environment, and the parallels I draw from landscape and identity.
This work is about self-acceptance and allowing opportunity for growth. We have a tendency to suppress aspects of our identity to meet culturally imposed expectations. When we embrace that which is innate, we find that our experience becomes meaningful and alive. Giving over to who we are allows those characteristics to bloom. Therefore, the intuitive exploration of the chaos is liberating for me.
The tactile aspect of my work is important. I can’t truly connect to a place without touching it or letting it touch me. Likewise, if I don’t interact with my medium, I haven’t connected to the artwork. Digging in and exploring life and identity, creates opportunity to learn, and often exposes hidden potential. In the end, what emerges from our explorations is authenticity.
