About The Artwork

The inspiration: I walk daily, and think it saves my soul and my body. I see interest and beauty all around, and I take photos! During the fear & shutdowns of the COVID pandemic I came to enjoy the poorly maintained roads in my small town. These inspired a photo series: The Surprisingly Artistic Potholes of Port Townsend. Here three thin hollow chested figures walk the streets, wading across the Artistic Potholes of Port Townsend. Pennies grow on trees that could fill our potholes, but the figures have other concerns as they stride forward. They face all the challenges of life, the pandemic, climate change, and they know they are Not Out of the Woods Yet. I have chosen sculpture, and these mediums, because I want my work to be and to feel strong. This work needs a three dimensional presence.

I am a mixed media artist with a preference for making 3-D work. I sometimes use molds& casting of a few originals to incorporate into new works. I also enjoy photography, "straight" and digitally manipulated, and sometimes include my photos in my other artwork. Maybe my motto is "art by any means necessary". My work is somewhat unusual, and perhaps I walk & work on the Dark Side. However I see hope and beauty everywhere, and hope that is part of even my darkest artworks. * * * Read a 2021 article about my work at Obsessed with Art here: https://obsessedwithart.com/macabre-artist-sandra-stowell/. Personally I am obsessed with making: after a 20 years working with computers, I turned to art full time. I left the city of Seattle for a cohousing community in idyllic small town Port Townsend. I have a particular love of sculpture, assembly, & collage: I draw, paint, sculpt, assemble, blog (http://ptartist.com/). I use a wide variety of media: pencil, colored pencil, pastels, watercolor, ink, resin, cement, wood, stone, fabric and more. My original work is often transformed & reused in both physical and digital collage. I use a computer, scanner & archival ink jet printer as tools to modify and create new work. I appreciate the element of surprise, so rarely make detailed plans. I try to balance a need for control, which requires technical skill and practice, with a sense of play and enjoyment. Despite my play, I take my work seriously: it is a daily practice. I do not follow techniques and trends in the art world, however it is a delight to encounter a new technique that allows me to express my visual thoughts. Art is a form of expression and way to share what I see and feel. I want to communicate the sense of mystery and delight I feel myself. I hope to capture your eye and mind, and to take you to a different place for at least a moment. My Thread is a Rope The thread I hold is a rope. My thread is not a delicate silken floss, Bright with color. The thread that I hold onto is a rope: Strong, dull, dun colored, Dirty, encrusted with the juices of sixty-two years. Years of living, struggling, crying Laughing, making, and holding hands. Tarred by many more years of history, Family stories, memories not my own. Some strands of this rope are loose, Unraveled, untidy, adhering to people and things Left along the way. But the rope is strong: I can Pull, and lean, and even hang limp From this thread.
