CONSTRUCTS OF MEANING
Group Exhibition Featuring: Howard Jones, Stefanie Kirkland, Belinda Lee, Benjamin Lowder & Ethan Meyer.
“Art is about seeing and creating. It is a process. As an artist, I must take the time to see, analyze, translate and own an image. The goal is to embrace that image and the feelings it evokes. Only then am I able to explore the depths of what I am creating, knowing that I have the foundation to stay focused and on task. This series: “Sharing the Process” speaks to this approach. Each work of art is based on a classical pen-and-ink drawing; from this platform I am able to visualize and organically grow each image in my series, starting with the most formal, academic representation and gradually becoming more abstract with each piece I create. As the series progresses, so does my vision of what I am creating. I am honored to share my creative process with our community. A percentage of sales from my art will be donated to Sharsheret Supports.“
