Description Abstract digital painting: An ethereal light shining through tendrils of a dark aquatic-looking garden. I wanted to create a piece that demonstrates the struggle we all face of moving through the darkness, even when it has its own beauty, to find the light that guides us to the other side. It is a piece celebrating beauty wherever you may find it.
Sherrie Looper, Portland Metro Member Since August 2008 Artist Statement Nietzsche said "You need chaos in your soul to give birth to a dancing star."
After 25+ years of creative endevors, I've found this to be so true. It's true for the universe and it's true for one lonely soul to create. My creativity is a way of embracing the chaos that exists, knowing that it is the only seed to true beauty, and also a way of finding my own self.
I have dabbled in many artistic mediums throughout my life, but somehow digital art has grabbed my focus and been an exquisite medium to pour out what is in my head & heart. My favorite pieces have lots of texture & detail, color - albeit dark at times, and a fluid movement that hopefully reflects the abstract thoughts we all share. I like to play with themes of opposites and balance, as well as tempting those more baser instincts of sensuality with the unbridled joys of life.
Most of the time I don't even know what I will be creating until it comes pouring out of my brush (well, rather my mouse...), but my gut reaction to it tells me when it speaks to my soul. I hope my pieces will speak to yours as well.
I also entertain creating custom pieces and will be putting up my new website soon. Please feel free to email me with comments or requests. Thank you for looking! Namaste.
