Artist Statement ~ For me art is a continuous revolving process and not being content with the traditional way, my creations reflect my need to explore and experiment to create innovative works. I rarely paint features on my subjects. Why? If there are no features this will allow your imagination to look at both movement and body language in the painting to visualize who you see. I utilize lightweight materials for my dimensional creations which are perceived to be heavier. While some of my art will appear to be the same, no two pieces are exactly alike. My work is created from several artistic forms and mixed media including recycled materials. My vision of art is principally of an abstract nature and through my art I am able to express myself. ~Virginia R. Coleman~
