Artists Describing Their Art:

Kanika Marshall - Kanika Marshall has created a distinctive collection of mixed-media art sculptures, which includes hand-painted tile mosaics and other two-dimensional wall pieces, three-dimensional sculptures, masks, garden art, wearable art, figurines, goddesses, breast cancer survivor art, and tribal-design pottery. She sculpts some pieces by hand from clay, paints them with a color glaze to form the varying hues of skin tones and other colors, and then low fires them in a kiln to ceramic perfection. Many of the pieces are draped with fabulously textured fabrics from Africa, and/or adorned with beadwork, glass, leather, recycled metal, stones, shells, or other finishing touches. Kanika believes her African ancestors work joyously through her hands to create each one-of-a-kind sculpture. Kanika studied with renowned potter/sculptor Ruth Rippon in 1980-81 and with figurative sculptor, Yoshio Taylor, in the early 1990s. Kanika's sculptures have been sold for years in the Crocker Art Museum, numerous art galleries and stores throughout Northern California, at juried art shows, on the World Wide Web, and to art aficionados all over the world. The City of Elk Grove purchased Kanika's "Leather Locks & Five Ancestors" and "Sea Jellies and River Rock." ...

Anji Worton - All of my subject matter is from my environment. Sometimes I see a face or notice a group of people interacting and I want to draw them immediately. I am inspired by the brilliant colours of nature, by dramatic lighting, by interesting objects and beautiful scenes. I go through my days framing images in my mind, thinking about how the scene in front of me would look on canvas, and wondering which medium would suit it. I think being an artist is a wonderful gift and to share that gift by producing works of art for others to enjoy is my mission in life. ...

Linda Casbon - In Paul Valery's words, "to see is to forget the name of the thing one sees". My work translates forms into a language of metaphoric associations. It hints at meanings without using literal descriptions. Objects are the visual sounds of this language. When placed together these words form a sentence, a poem, and a kind of narrative with its own internal logic. The pieces look like . . . feel like . . . sound like . . . but cannot be consciously identified or named. With this work I am striving for a sense of unnameable familiarity. Some of the work consists of single objects. I view these pieces as words or emblems. More often the work is a group of objects, or a composition. Ceramic forms are used as a sculptural canvas to draw on, creating interplay between painted shapes and actual shapes. The physical scale and formal qualities of the work reference the body. Current series include: "Pillows" which have a volume reminiscent of lungs and breathing, "Tunnels" and "Blankets" which focus on differences between inside and outside and the idea of transformational space, and "Cages" which utilize structural elements to create form and explore three-dimensional mapping and order versus randomness. The surfaces and ...

Kathleen Hill - Artist Statement I choose to work with clay because it is receptive to unlimited combinations of texture, form and structure. I've always been fascinated with the textures, forms and colors in the world around me. Clay allows me to recreate and manipulate the various forms and textures that I choose to incorporate in my art work. Flower petals, eroded landscapes, reefs, corrugated roadbeds, bark, the curve of a tree limb and other natural objects inspire a tactile language I use to create art works that are visceral; amorphic; asymmetrical. I want the finished work to have elements of the familiar but not clearly reference any particular item. All living things go through a multitude of changes and survive a number of challenging events. Clay allows me to show or suggest a history or series of layers of events .. that reflects the process of change. This is a recurring theme in my work that recognizes the fundamental reality of change as a part of all living processes. While I often have a specific phrase or title in mind when creating a specific piece, I am curious to hear what others see in my work. The viewer brings their own experiences ...

Gayla Lemke - I have always been intrigued by primitive art...especially art from the South Pacific...body painting...tattoos...wood carving...stone carving...the universal symbols contained therein that connect. I find that my own "doodles" reflect similar imagery. This body of work stems from the drawings that flow from me when not thinking, as well as the influence from looking at and studying primitive/oceanic art. The forms themselves are allowed to take shape as they are built. The surface carving follows the same path in development. My work tells a story, be it literal or symbolic. This personal narrative has been influenced by exposure to the various cultures and histories of the places I have lived and visited. The sculptures are hand built with slabs and coils from a heavily grogged clay. At the leather hard stage they are carved with a variety of tools. After being bisque fired, a black stain is applied and they are again fired to cone 04. The sculptures of houses contain the above elements, but became more personally influenced by current events in my life. I recently built a studio and the structure of doing construction comes through in these pieces. The red metal...
