Those who wish to sing always find a song ~~~ Swedish proverb

My Artistic Voice

Art

My philosophy on Art is spiritual.

I see Art as the manifestation of inspiration. For me, it is a nurturing relationship full of life. It is my tango with the universe, the intertwining of the microcosm of myself with the macrocosm of All That Is.

Art is a spiritual journey of understanding my whole nature and the amazing interconnectedness of all Life. Art calls on us to be open, receptive and daring.

I create Art when I feel aligned with my sacred center. When we become One with this live connection within ourselves and follow inspiration and let our imagination ignite an idea, visionary Art happens.

Art, then, exists as a formidable force and becomes the unique expression of our own inner voice. To allow our inner light to shine outwardly is to shine a light and mirror on all of humanity.

This is when Art Rocks!


Susanna

I am a Fiber Artist living in Florida and a member of the SAQA (Studio Art Quilt Associates) organization.

My profound interests in Spirituality and the Healing Arts, and my passion for pondering Life bring a different angle to my work. I love the softer medium of fabric to convey a message in tactile form.

My work is often stylized, featuring symbols addressing social and environmental issues or I will utilize mosaic-like patterns to showcase the dichotomy of our human condition: our strong feelings of separation and division vs. our equally strong desires & longings for unity and wholeness.

I especially like to create Art quilts which confront illusions, challenge norms, advocate causes or celebrate one's spiritual nature in hopes of scintillating the viewer's imagination to see or feel something anew.

It is the power of Art to move, which moves me.

Art is the Beauty of the Soul in Communication


Making Art simply nurtures my soul. I always look forward to the flow of inspiration giving birth to new ideas and energizing me to expand myself in a myriad of ways. It is my desire to create Fiber Art which instills a sense of wonder or Beauty in the eye of the beholder or which incites feeling in the viewer prompting questions or even spurring self-reflection.

Always JOYfully creating,

Susanna Hotchkiss
