Michelle Vara Artist Statement
“If you want to find the secrets of the universe, think in terms of energy, frequency & vibration.” - Nikola Tesla
My work is interested in the politics of the universal consciousness and tethered to the lineage of the Abstract Expressionists; it engages with Jungian ideals that there is a shared consciousness tapped into and revealed through the viewers' engagement with abstracted color and form. My work is not bound in one medium or style, but joins multiple platforms of material, and processes that I believe necessary for subject engagement. The use of recycled material makes oblique references to karmic notions of rebirth and regeneration along a continuum of time.
“Images that are true symbols … are the best possible expressions for something unknown…”
