ARTIST STATEMENT

I am a mixed media fiber artist. I am a process person. My process is fed by my love of being outdoors. I’m passionate about coming up with ideas and working out the kinks. This leads to more discoveries, an evolution. I make the art and then the art makes me.

Part of that process is photography. I can see the most exquisite scenes or combinations of patterns and want to share that beauty. My art represents these moments.

They are what lie beneath. I bring them back to share, to remind, to remember. These moments become my source, my well. I hope to bring that energy into my art making, to communicate the positive.

 

"Breaking the Surface" by artist Wen Redmond

Layers peeled back reveal the source, the inspiration, and my mad desire to capture thoughts, dreams and the beauty of nature.

Each work is individual and a communication between my inner imagination and later, the viewer.

  1. Es estupendo poder ver el trabajo serio de comunicación de otros colegas, hay mucho de intutivo en su obra pero lo que mas me gusta, es la cordinación entre la pasión y técnica, es verdaderamente formidable, el compas de las texturas y la permanencia de ciertas formas , redondean un texto gráfico que implica al espectador.
    Le felicito

    It is great to be able to see the serious work of communication from other colleagues, there is a lot of Intute in your work but what I like, is the coordination between passion and technique, it is truly formidable, the compass of the textures and the permanence of certain forms, rounded a graphic text involving the Viewer. I congratulate you Gina Maria Valero

  3. I really enjoyed looking at the paintings, they are beautiful in a way I can’t describe with my not-so-extensive English vocabulary. Especially “Breaking the Surface”, which is a spectacle of shapes and colors.
