Podcast Conversation with Michael Kast of Arts North

Leave a comment

At the begining of this pandemic I was invited to speak about my creativity with Michael Kast of Arts North. Since then all of my workshops in the near future have been postponed or canceled. We talk about the creative process, what it means to be an artist during a pandemic, dreams and the 100 Houses Project as well as what I am working on now.

I use the symbols and vibrant colors of naïve art - a language we can share and understand - to communicate an inward vision. As an artist, I obtain my inspiration from the external world around me, but reveal in my paintings the internal world of my imagination. By reducing my images to their essential elements, I can bring simplicity, myth, and the primal, to my explorations of limits and boundaries with the intent of moving beyond them. Recently, I have worked on a series of paintings that explore the soul’s journey. I have followed my vision to places I had not intended to go allowing my intuition to guide me. I have found power in words and incorporated them in my work; I have used collage and montage to go places I had not been before, while the triptych has allowed me to explore edges and opposites, parts of the whole. I use life story as the dark, rich compost to generate new creation and have in my most recent paintings worked more intuitively than ever before.
