One in the Other is part of a body of work that is a combination of painting, drawing, and mixed media. I am considering how one cultivates the ability to change one’s perspective, through education, spiritual teachings, and the jolting perception of beauty. Where do we find in ourselves the ability to cultivate compassion, to feed and shelter beings in need, both human and non-human? The representation of animals and people in contemplation of form, color and environment suggest our need for deep reflection and empathy at the current moment; they urge a transformative process in the act of learning and considering the unknown.

Artist Statement:

Making art is a way to create meaning, to question systems of thought, and to communicate relationships outside the limitations of spoken language. I engage art historical images as a way to point towards the ideas and philosophies that constitute a visual language, an integration of old and new, nature and culture, thought and action; a revitalization of images as a generative possibility. I am currently interested in researching how thought creates form, the form becoming or manifesting itself as an object. Looking at how an object suggests how we think, what we believe, and how we live. An inquiry into the way physical forms and patterns become representative of what we know of ourselves, the relationship between the self, the objectified, and nature. Looking at the everyday world with the idea that we are not only passively interacting with the environment, we are actually actively thinking it. What kind of environment is built from the ideology of something specifically made to be consumed, bought, or sold? Using objects that are found, discarded, or deemed no longer useful is important in questioning the foundations of what is deemed valuable in contemporary culture. – Bridget Rountree
