2008 SugarLand Airport Board Members Show
0 Alo, Jill
I'm interested in making art about life, not art about art. Though concerned with the formal elements of good Art, equally interesting are the philosophical questions which viewers might relate to-- "what is going on here?" or, "can people ever really understand each other?" There may be no specific answers to these questions, but paying attention to experience has its own rewards.
At my drafting table, I think in terms of mini-narratives and metaphors. The formal elements come later, after I begin to work on an image.
Leaving specific information out helps make the images more open to the viewer. The finished image may not have the same associations or meanings for viewers, but it might.

I have always been a writer with a vivid imagination and a skill for portraying emotion in my work. In college I took an art class in printmaking and lost my heart. I haven't stopped writing but I do take my skills as a writer and apply them to my art. Emotion is the core of who we are as people and I try to create work (art and poetry) that taps into my heart and soul, work that expresses something intensely real and intimate. True art is more than just a pretty picture, it says something about who you are, where you've been, and what you feel.

My photo based prints are about light and its interaction with the artifacts that clutter our daily lives, that people leave behind, or natural objects around us. This interaction is mysterious and beautiful, imbued with significance, but unnoticed by most people. My mission is to call attention to these moments, to show the excitement in the mundane.

It is never easy to live a busy life and still have the time to create masterful works of art. Those who achieve this effort should get a medal or at least a giant chocolate donut every morning until life gets easier. This is my life in a donut box. I am ready for an artistic revolution! I am ready to put art on the top of my list and see my artworks come to life with a new vibrancy! Check-Mate! I'm there!
1 Salinas, Ashley
I enjoy creating art from life. I feel that we are the sum of our experiences and that each moment is an opportunity to become something more. I think we should cherish the mundane, the every day, and the daily routines as they are the root of our personality, the fundamental base of who we are, and which contain the most comfortable moments of our lives.
Aside from subject matter I like to blur the border of media. I felt I had reached a peak in my drypoint line drawings. I have always been drawn to charcoal; the softness of the tone; the fragility of the medium. At any moment the marks could be blown or rubbed off the paper. I felt it would be a great achievement to create a reproducible print which captured the very essence of charcoal. Working with hand tools only using roulettes, sandpaper, a drypoint needle, and a scraper/burnisher I have successfully achieved my goal and feel that I have much more to learn.
