Kathryn Casper, north carolina Member Since November 2011 Artist Statement I've read that "art is a recreation of reality according to the artist's metaphysical" perceptions/judgements. For me, this description is half 'what art is'. The rest of the equation is the viewer's metaphysical perceptions and judgements. Unity of the two completes the piece, finishing it, making it whole. With each viewer a unique shared entity results. With each viewer that one piece is recreated.
I create intuitively. I start with a felt idea, vague images, colored perceptions and as I work, the piece emerges. My hope is that a piece I've begun is never finished and that the creative process continues with every viewer. I hope, with their unique experiences and perceptions, they make it their own.
