New Artist: Virginia Sitzes / by Caleb Savage

My work is meant forge a connection with the viewer; the mark making extracts my personal emotions, thoughts, and memories in visual form. I want to express the desire to cry, to laugh, to dance, and to sleep all at the same time, through layers and colors. My work becomes more than just a visual experience; it evokes an emotional response.

About her work

“There is freedom in letting go of control. My work, in a literal sense, is a visual manifestation of my inner thoughts. While playing with the merging of mediums, a brush, a screen, a needle, I let intuition guide my mark making. I play with process and abstraction while letting my brains subconsciously deal with moments, throught, and memories. I hope to give a glimpse of what it may be like to walk down a tiny stream, gather around a campfire at the end of the day, or stand in the midst of waves crashing during the setting of the sun.”
