LIQUESCENCE by Dionna Clark
“The universe is wider than or views of it”- Henry David Thoreau
In my work I collaborate with nature. I find that by working hand in hand with my environment I am able to produce something more true to what it is that I am after. I want to create a space for viewers’ minds to wander and for my artwork to reflect a sense of freedom and discovery. Freedom is evident in the organic marks that reflect foliage and something of an overgrown garden that couldn’t be kept within its confines. I then go into these pieces of busy frozen moments and melt the barriers of space and time that they were entrapped in. That is done by an intuitive mark making process that creates depth. By exemplifying certain areas are instances of intrigue. Viewers will journey to a place of intentional uncertainty where they will wonder in and out of understanding.
I do not structure beyond the size of the paper and the materials that I use. I find that by allowing for varying differences in the way I work, I feel most at ease and in tune with my most virtuous ideas. Working innately not only feels relaxing but is also necessary to the work. There is always a meditative quality consistent within the reworking. When they combine you have to worlds colliding in one space. Marks made with the least amount of human artifice then paired with the interjected stream of conscious highlights. The end product results in being the melding of two energy sources fusing in one place. They work together to create something serene and very unlike either of the original forces would have produced independent of the other.
