VIEW IN MY ROOM
As always, the names of my pieces pay homage to the classic rock music I grew up on (either a song title or a specific lyric). While its difficult to narrow it down, some of my favorite bands include The Rolling Stones, Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers, Fleetwood Mac, Pink Floyd, Led Zeppelin, Pearl Jam, Nirvana, Lynyrd Skynyrd, CCR, Joan Jett and the Black Hearts, Prince, The Red Hot Chili Peppers, The Eagles, Aerosmith, Bob Dylan, The Cure, Heart, and Willie Nelson. When I paint, I listen to all my favorite songs and think about life and perhaps the song's meaning, so I feel it would be disingenuous for me to NOT include their lyrics in my titles since these bands have been and will always be such a great influence. Love Man is one of my older works that sold and the process to create it, as always, was an organic one~meaning it starts with line discovery and then one stroke leads to another, opening the door for what turned out to be, in my opinion, visions of little robots on the canvas. I'm always thinking about what is going on in the world while I paint, so it makes sense that the appearance of technology or family or motherhood or politics or music shows up. The title Love Man, as you might notice, pays homage to the Otis Redding song of the same name. I thought it was an interesting title because if these little creatures are, in fact, robots, and maybe they're not, but if they are, I love the dichotomy between something machine like, not capable of love, and a real love man. What will happen to human interaction when technology takes over? How will we evolve as a species? Where will true love fit in?

Los Angeles based abstract and mixed media artist, Staci Cross, uses color, formation, and line discovery to express thoughtful, emotional imagery to the canvas. Staci believes the art is already in the room and that she is simply the vessel between what exists and what is seen. Committing to the work begets a blessing from the muses and therefore daily practice and time are essential to the process. Inspired by the abstract expressionist movement, pop art, cubism, and graffiti artists of the 70's and 80's, Staci's ever evolving connection to painting roots itself through music, Motherhood, photography, political commentary, pop culture, human energy and emotion, social awareness and the beauty of nature. Lately, Staci has been embarking on a new endeavor--working on the floor with unstretched canvas which provides an intimate fluidity with the paint while allowing an unencumbered physicality to the process. Freedom arises. Change can be scary, but often times, a real gem stems from it. Picasso, Rothko, de Kooning, Helen Frankenthaler, Lee Krasner, Miro, Franz Kline, Warhol, Cy Twombly, Howard Hodgkin, Jean-Michel Basquiat, and Ed Ruscha are among her favorite artists. Staci graduated from the prestigious USC School of Cinema-Television and studied abstract painting at The Brentwood Art Center in Santa Monica, California. She lives in Los Angeles with her husband and two sons. www.stacicross.com www.facebook.com/stacicrossartist www.instagram.com/stacicross_art www.twitter.com/StaciCrossArt
