Artist Statement:
"These past few years have taught me a lesson. Most of us, at one time or another, are confronted with difficult or even devastating circumstances. Usually, they are unexpected and totally out of our control. They are dropped on us like an uninvited bomb. I have learned that healing is allowed to take place once you open yourself up to those devastating blows and allow TIME to gently cleanse your soul. Through the gift of time, listening, incubation, processing and creating became my best friends. My art became my salvation. Hence, my bold Stork Unreality series was born.
Nothing is ever purely black and white. As humans, we usually operate in a gray zone. We know this fact to be true. We have recently lived through a tumultuous, extenuating era. We have witnessed the culmination of the Black Lives Matter movement AND a worldwide pandemic with Covid-19. It was the perfect storm. But, with each battle we endure; we become stronger, more tenacious, more resilient, making us better, more empathetic allies."
Artist talk at 6:30 p.m.
