Artwork by Diana Berrón
I have no memory, whatsoever, of my life before art. In my 35 years on this Earth, there has not been a day of boredom, my eyes have always been amazed by all images: features of faces, cast shadows, beams of light, the distinctive colors of human skin. More importantly, my curiosity has taken me to wonder about the matter and essence of all things, to try to decipher the story between every wrinkle, every freckle, every scar… what makes a person or thing so unique?
With that stated, I guess my biggest challenge in art is to take it one step at a time and establish the basis; I rush because I want to know the result, to uncover the secret that my eyes see, but my brain doesn’t grasp unless I paint it. And so, this rushing leaves me always unsatisfied with the results… the mystery remains behind it’s veil.
I really believe that this course would be of great help with my compulsion for rushing. I need to know how to build the steps so that my ladder doesn’t keep crumbling, and I absolutely want to be capable of building a long, tall, sturdy ladder!
I know I have it in me, just need the right guidance.
Thank you for reading this, I hope it made some sense.
