Cecelia 'Ivy' Price (Artistic Chaos)
I like to work with nature to pull out saturated color to enhance the beauty that already exists there but is subdued. It is in this way that I bring work to life with my brushstrokes while my hand built panels show my dedication to the process of creating a work.
I have a fascination with vanitas, which is a type of symbolic work of art especially associated with still life painting in Flanders and the Netherlands. This Latin term corresponds to the insignificance of earthly life.
Challenges I face are having to get past the misconceptions that skulls are “scary,” nudity is “porn,” and the false sense of “perfection” in the human form.
