STACY LUND LEVY
My art gives me happiness and satisfaction mainly in the process of its creation. To me, creating any work of art is a continuous series of mini puzzles that need solutions.
I continually look for “clues” in my subject. As I am working, I am asking myself a series of questions. What supports the object or being? The weight is centered where? How is it connected? To what? Is it flying or being pressed down? What colors should I use to achieve the feeling that I want to convey? I continue to work through these steps until I am satisfied.
If I have answered all the questions, and solved all the puzzles, the result is tremendously satisfying for me and hopefully the viewer.
