Lynne Ciacco Artist Statement
Pioggia, Calabria Series, L.Ciacco
My varied art forms (painting, mixed media, digital, textile) reflect the complex layers and textures of which life is composed. I paint largely without plan, seeing where textures and shapes lead me; discovering the subject as I explore with colour. Though drawing on a formal art education, I work intuitively, painting from the inside out rather than the outside in. While my work is largely representational, my pictures describe feelings and impressions stirred by a subject rather than the subject itself. My aim is to both externalize personal sensations and invoke those of the viewer.
