Sisters…In the studio…

Detail of Sisters by Cathy Hegman

I have lately been interested in the inexplicable closeness of sisters.  The unique characteristics that differentiate sisters seem to also exist to bind the familiar found in them.  The last few months, have been spent painting for myself, perhaps the alienation brought on by the floodwater has given me a time and space to paint with out boundaries or interruptions.

The last series of works and the work presently in the gallery are searching pieces that are marked by diffused edges, giving way to the thought of how much of life is blurred, and out of focus; yet the small  focused,well studied facets seem to  enable us to  see life clearly.  Perhaps the statement is less about my life but more about the world in general.

I will post the advances of the pieces later…..

About Cathy S. Hegman

Art, much like a road links people together both visually and mentally. One can attain a glimpse inside the artist’s soul by studying the artist’s work, and perhaps find something that links them to the artist and the art. A work of art has the ability to resonate and touch the emotions without regard to age, gender, race, or religion through the application of pigment to canvas or paper. Art can be the voice that cries out without limits, or sometimes whispers the thoughts of the creator. Art speaks silently, yet conjures up feelings and gives satisfaction that is undeniable, and yet intrinsic. It validates our need to learn about ourselves, and gives us freedom to search for our own identities. The road is long and often dusty, but always renewing the spirit with inspiration. It is my hope in this lifetime to give a part of what I have learned through and on my journey with others. The deepest form of us is revealed in our thoughts and my art is the translation of my thoughts to paper and canvas. I paint layers of color and line to create a history of marks that will guide the viewer into my world of thought and engage them in the process. I embed personal symbols throughout my art to give it deeper meaning. I encourage you to think about life in a visual way and to contemplate our connections with each other and the world we share.
