Things I look for in artwork are the effective utilization of the Elements and Principles of Design, Technique, and a message that speaks to the viewer. The idea of a “message” transcends method, media, and technique. For each person this idea of a message is different but unilaterally there for all people viewing the image. It should continue to “talk” beyond the first viewing and cause one to want to continue viewing the image over and over.
“Flying Circus” is so far removed from what I have been doing. I have been searching for a new way to say things and in January 2018 Flying Circus emerged. I love the discovery, the research, the struggle of working out new and different medias I could never settle into something.
"There are no two identical ways artwork can be viewed. There is no right or wrong when viewing artwork our minds need to be as open as a child’s, playing with colorful building blocks or choosing colors from a box of crayons filled with possibilities." - Christine Alfery
