I started alcohol ink painting a few years ago at the prompting of a fellow artist. I enjoy the vibrancy of the medium and allowing the medium to flow freely. I'm always experimenting with new techniques with this medium and stretching the viewer's imagination. I use recycled materials to get the textures and dimensions in my pieces. It is interesting and intriguing to watch the viewer try to look inside the paintings because of the textures and dimensions created. In some cases, giving the appearance of 3D.
Dean is our featured artist for this month's Meet & Greet. A dozen more examples, framed and fantastic, are in our gallery.
Cheryl Smallwood-Roberts is an artist/designer working primarily in earthenware ceramics. She has been studying ceramics for over 25 years, both in the creation of them, and the research of pre-Columbian pottery. Much of what she creates is hand-built decorative work inspired by her love of traditional coil construction, taught to her by Santa Fe artist Dolly Naranjo, and her anthropological research.
Do not chase beauty, embrace it. Enjoy it and relish in it while it is present, but do not ask it to stay and do not go looking for it once it is gone. It will find you when you are ready and not a moment before. Your time apart from the beauty of life should be spent facing the darkness in your world head on. Your work is to clean your world so that it is more inviting to beauty, to better facilitate her return, and so that next time she might stay just a bit longer.
