Karrie Ross – Q1 Art Competition – Artist Portfolio Magazine
“The motion of art actually creates its own physics. Visual Art in motion touches more people with a greater impact.”
I example ways that energy enters our lives through the processes of art-making, sculpture, art-book-projects, installations, curation, design, and feng shui energy flow. I share my explorations into concepts of energy, science, participation, making an impact, conversations and being seen, as the underlying influences of my art. Using abstract and metaphorical representations that create a ‘safe’ place for the viewer to experience a flow and connection from their interaction with the art… discovering that they are part of a bigger whole. I pose to you a question … “What is YOUR energy telling the world?” and I invite you to join with, and experience my energy in the art I create. MY play! “There is FUN to be found in everything we do. So be sure to develop a pattern of creating conscious play that will stay with you always.”
