Featured image in blog, The Mind Of An Artist - Alfery Explains The Gears Series
Artist statement: "How do artists dream and use our imagination? We create places for people to gather and be inspired in and learn from." - Christine Alfery
Christine Alfery’s current series “Gears” has gone by many names. For this artist, the process of exploring a concept usually takes precedence over the final result.
Much like her paintings, layer upon layer has been added - each layer adding depth and texture to the initial idea. As she explains "I just let the work travel and become something else that is just as wonderful - I let the work become what it wants to become not what I want it to become."
In this series, Alfery explored the apparent dichotomy of natural creation versus man-made design. The artist discovered these forces are two sides of the same coin – you cannot have one without the other. The key is balance, and this is found in creativity.

"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
