Starting November 5th we will introduce our next Featured Artist: Isabelle Bourman.
Artist’s Statement of Isabelle Bourman:
“Beautiful and tangled in doubt, the unknown creates a haunting aspect to my work. It reveals a space of mystery where light can be transformed into the likes of my own imagination. Some might call this delusion- to see something in the object other than the object itself, but I believe it is a great source of enjoyment. It is the act of experiencing imagination. Imagining isn’t a far-fetched experience separate from reality, but rather it emanates from reality. It is a real experience. Fantasy made physical. An object’s physical reality is imagination’s vehicle for creative growth in which we, as infants in a new world, may crawl in and around.
There is also a sadness in my work emanating from the cognitive dissonance we bear as humans: understanding the separation between what’s wanted and what actually is, between romance and reality. This creates disappointment if it is not used for a greater good such as the process of creating new things to bridge these two worlds. This is what I try to do.”
