Kari Vick conveys the storytelling capability of Art. "I see stories everywhere. For me writing is visual; it articulates, evokes and paints the scene."
I love the immediacy of watercolor. No rough sketch, just the intuition of creativity. It seems as if the image emerges from the paper itself. I’m just along for the ride. My favorite quote: “Leap and let the net appear."
With my first intaglio print, I rediscovered my mother tongue. I'm awed by the etching medium, which marries integrity of line to rich tonal qualities. Although labor intense and technical, much of the process is blind. I might work on a plate for more than a week, but I won't know what I truly have until I pull the first print.
I do a lot of watching; being still and aware grants nature an invitation. I've laughed at the playful and been humbled by the profound. I search for these stories; the old, new and yet to be.
