CHERYL POSTROZNY - ART DEPTH
My art is the byproduct of a continual exploration in how to best capture beauty while expressing life’s intricacies. Beauty to me can be found in the darkest places, while ugliness rears its head in the most beautiful faces.
Symbolism plays a part in my art. Many times I receive vivid lessons in dreams – two words, phrases or images provided together which are profound, but separate would be meaningless. These tend to become manifest in my art making, leading to works that draw the viewer in by aesthetics yet have underlying meanings.
I do not have a medium of preference, but rather use what I feel will best express the intentions of a particular piece. “Expressive” and “the immediacy of the mark” have been used to describe my work, and characteristics of my vision in art include the following:
-Finding truth in beauty
-Finding hope in the future
-The reincarnate essence of the soul
-The sacred female
-Dreams and the subconscious
In the current body of work, I focus on examining one’s acceptance to the idea of change as it relates to betrayal and finding forgiveness. Each piece is unique to the portrait of an individual and tells his or her story through combined words, objects and imagery. Reflections of the past, present and future while in the midst of becoming aware and awakened are highlighted.
