Ericka Oscarson - Artist Statement

Woman have a been a continuous theme in much of my artwork. As I recognized who I was as a woman, it was a natural progression for me. These pieces in particular are about the burdens and the beauty in regard to the feminine gift of creation. I enjoy working in black and white as it presents an idea with a nostalgic feel, offering a detached reflection into part of, or the whole piece. During the creation process I include abstracted images that flow from the expansion of the original themes and helps the finished piece take form. As a modern woman, I can not help but feel the power and sacrifice of our gender, but more importantly I appreciate the opportunities this generation offers.
