Artist Statement:

Art can form a link to “what is out there”, a connection with the world and with others.

Most art pieces are failures; they aren’t perfect; flawed in one way or another. Hence art is a practice; it’s about doing something over and over again, exercising and strengthening the way we see. It’s about learning to see, learning to make connections between things and learning to make comparisons. It is about learning how to handle materials and working both with and against the tendencies of those materials. It’s about recognizing the possibility for improvement.

If you have any questions please don’t hesitate to contact Hatch Art at yvette@hatchlimitededitions.com and they’ll be happy to discuss your query.

Thanks, Louisa.
