Artist's Statement~ My artwork explores the mutually formative relationship of people and their natural landscape. I gather imagery by taking photos to use as visual reference in my studio as I draw, paint, or make prints. Strategizing a formula of steps to construct the image infuses the work with internal and experiential self-reflection. Starkly contrasting the immaculate nature of a true in-the-moment experience, unique memories of sensation and emotion are recalled and more objectively observed as I plan and act artistically. Creatively absorbing and repurposing in this manner grants me the alluring comfort of perceived control. Ultimately an examination of “grand balance,” my work is inspired by the evolution of culture as dictated by natural surroundings as well as the future of human and environmental solidarity.
The exhibit is sponsored by the Bozeman Public Library Foundation and will be open during regular Library hours. For more information about the exhibit, please call Sarah DeOpsomer at 582-2425 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
