“Our world is filled with color, pattern, and texture.
Every day, everywhere, a feast is REVEALED to us.
It waits to be RECEIVED and RELEASED back into the world.
The process of making art is therapy for me. Art allows me to delve into my own psyche and history, and to explore current political and social issues.
In 2018, I drew the word “given” from a pile of cards each containing a Biblical word, as is the New Year tradition of our church. Since then, I have spent many months thinking about this word and making art to illustrate life’s givens, and in particular my life’s givens (that may not be all that different than your givens) using the givens of 8”x10” photographs I take. What in life must stay the same? What can be changed? Can the given be rearranged?
My art is a summary of a conversation, and it is my invitation to you to join the conversation.” ~ Lynn Lampman
