"My earliest memories involve me trying to make sense of the world through artistic expression. Although my styles have changed dramatically over the years, much like a journal, they very much reflect whatever emotional state I was in at the time of creation. I find art to be extremely therapeutic, both in the meditative act of painting itself, and the feeling of relief and joy I have after I have brought something out of my mind into the world.
In my latest series entitled “Awakenings”, I explore the duality between self-protection and vulnerability. They are the outgrowth of the biggest spiritual challenge that I have faced in my early 30’s, both professionally and personally – that of maintaining a layer of armor to keep me resilient against the lows in life while at the same time remaining open to and excited by new experiences, wonder and surprise.
My background as a creative director for a fashion company has directly influenced the style of these pieces. I build the pieces digitally with a mixture of my own photography and high-fashion images I find online, then print, cut and collage meticulously until the composition is set. I then freely paint into the wood panels, so on one hand the work is planned out beforehand, but on the other, it is organic and surprising in its execution - kinda like life. " --Kayla Silber
