For the past three winters I followed an impulse to paint. No expectations or goal…just paint. As the paint flowed so did my thoughts, feelings, and concepts of time and space. Movement and change took over the canvas and projections of my interior landscape appeared. The fluidity of the paint enabled those spaces to transform even as they were being represented. The permanence of catching a shape shifting consciousness in the moment brings greater understanding and action to heal old wounds and highlight bright spots of hope and love. —Linda Erzinger
My process for making abstract, non-objective art is mostly stream of consciousness – a cross between meditation and a conversation with the piece of art. That conversation is also happening between the conscious and subconscious parts of my brain, moving in and out of awareness of the deliberate mark-making, choosing instead to allow each mark to determine the need for the next one. I find that exploring my subconscious during the process yields interesting results, sometimes revealing things about myself, sometimes what’s around me, hopefully tapping into things that are universal to the human experience. When the viewer is faced with this work there is often a conversation that happens between them and the artwork, a Rorschach test of sorts, where the art then reveals something about the viewer. —Britany Baker
