Artist Statement

I heard a writer say once that how we experience life is an illusion and that the purpose of art is to uncover reality. Indeed, reality seems quite like a set of unturned cards, and I'm not sure we can define it until after our hand has been played. The best solution I have found is to fray the edges of the illusion a bit by bending the laws that everyone knows. In my work people can fly, plants and people merge, women wear snorkels while making love. For me, these images hint at reality, opening a back door to the underlying truth of what I see and experience. By rendering things in a magical light, the illusion starts to give way to the real in the same way that madness sometimes serves to define sanity. Formally, my work is much more practical. I make paintings, drawings and intaglio prints based on my drawings. The prints are a mixture of old and new processes; instead of etching the plates in acid, my prints are made with photosensitive plates. I enjoy the control this process gives me over the final image. Thank you for visiting my site! --Lynette Vought ...
