ARTIST STATEMENTS

JUDITH COOPER    https://www.jcooperstudio.com
My artwork is created from an exploration into my psychic depths. I open myself as a vehicle through which energies and visions can flow into imagery. A deep reverence for life and the natural laws of the universe are an integral part of my spiritual center. This connection allows me greater intimacy with my core of existence and furthers my understanding of my place in the cosmos, including that moment of wonder where “magic” takes place and I am privileged to be its witness.

CONNIE SAEMS     www.conniesaems.com/
I am drawn to explore and investigate materials. Curiosity about the materials is part of the drive for the exploration.  My most recent work explores the connection of art and brain research.  I translate scientific information related to neuro-physiology to the circuitry of human emotion.  Black lines and color washes create landscapes of imagined neurological circuitry in the human body.  Dendrites move across the page, dip deeper into the neural matrix.  Electrical charges are created, energy is exchanged.  A change has happened, the course not visible, but recorded.  Evidence of what created this change lies right below the surface, revealing torn pieces of letters, frozen in place by the capturing of a moment, etching a neural pathway in the human brain.  A human connection with physiological traces, no longer imagined, becomes visible.

This exhibit would not be possible without assistance from the Friends of the Bedford Free Public Library.
The public is invited to view the exhibit during regular library hours.
