Hi everyone. My name is Angie and I'm an aspiring artist recently graduated from University of California, Santa Cruz.
I’m interested in creating portraits that are manipulated and merged with abstraction. The purpose of my work is to question the sources of personal identity. Where do we get our ideas of who we are? How do we reconcile our purpose as living beings with the overall grand scale of the universe? My work presents these questions and expresses the inner turmoil that comes from struggling to answer them. As people, we are multifaceted, contradictory, confusing, and complicated, and I want my work to confront this reality by depicting messy, textured paint work, instead of characterizing identity as a clean and, straightforward concept.
Moving forward, I’d like to continue on this train of thought but push the depiction of the
portraits and the physicality of my paint work in more dynamic and interesting ways. I want to experiment working with scale, perspective, new materials, and varied color schemes, with an emphasis on experimentation. I want my process and my struggle with creating work to be as significant to the pieces as the final product.
