CONTEMPORARY ART REVIEW

Stacy Lovejoy

Lives and works in Portland , OR , USA

reating art takes me back to my childhood - Cthat time when you

admire water drops which sparkle in a sunny ray ; seek funny characters in a rug ; giggle over your puddle reflection and smile when a gentle wind tickles your cheeks . A time when you are happy-golucky , sensitive , almighty , and sometimes naive , but always genuine . I am an eternal child and art allows me to maintain this state of being .
I love to be in nature - to hug trees , absorb astonishing color combinations with my fibers , to examine bird coloration , membrane of leaves , which is full of moisture ... I relish a beauty of a fruit pulp , a whisper of ocean sand , scents of forest … I ’ m a part of nature - Its disciple and the art tool .
Every time I examine my finished art works , I am pleasantly surprised that they were created by me !
‘ The Radiant Thread ,’ tells a story about an engrossing journey to my subconscious to find my mission on Earth . During the whole journey , I watched myself from the sidelines , immersed in my memories , and explored dreams . This experience has taught me to always follow my heart , think abstractedly and to discover the wonder in everything . Today , you can see the artworks which symbolize my points and discoveries that made me closer to a thread of sense . The radiant thread , which I ' ve finally distinctly seen .
