Kris Mitchell, Oregon Member Since May 2009 Artist Statement I have been making art for more than 40 years. Fueled by a profound love of the natural world, my creation of art comes from a driving force to show the sacred landscape that surrounds me in all its complexity. I am endlessly searching for ways to express the visions in my soul. Art is the language I speak; color is my voice, design my words. Visual conceptions become my sermons. Hues forms and textures randomly intermix, unify, and commingle to give the common-place a sense of spirituality on my canvas.
