Artist's Statement:

How does your garden grow?

I’m sure when you hear the question “how does your garden grow”? your immediate answer is

careful watering and sunlight. When keeping up a garden you may find yourself nurturing your

plants, protecting them from rodents or harmful locusts that could shorten their growth. You may

even remove them from their spots once they’ve outgrown their home, or reached their peak. At

first thought of hearing this question, your mind may only wander on the subject of greenery, but

have you ever thought that maybe this question could also relate to human life?

For example, we treat our gardens as realms. We respect it, we monitor it and feed it with care

and love. Why is it that we don’t treat our bodies as such? We often find ourselves exposed to

negative situations/energies in similarity to locusts, which we wouldn’t expose our plants to

because we know the outcome will discontinue the growth. As we monitor our gardens we

specifically understand what our plants need in order to reach their highest potential; these same

practices we can apply to life. Growth is limitless.

Sometimes questions provide more perspective than statements. What are my weaknesses? How

can I improve my weaknesses? What process works for my growth? Am I consistent enough?

How can I make my garden grow? When we analyze our ingredients we can understand the

outcome results clearer.

My goal is to communicate with my audience that growth is limitless with consistency. This

show is to depict different ranges of growth and understanding of life. I want to create a more

colorful and vivid setting that takes you away from reality, and showcases it in a more “artificial

realism”.

The different pieces will consist of elements of self love, growth, the desire to create from

surroundings in a positive light, and exploration of colors.
