Carol Gordon has been inspired to use her life experiences as the foundation for a journey into creative arts.
She will be exhibiting writing, photography and painting projects at Pynelogs Cultural Centre until 5 p.m. on Saturday, September 26th.
“As I delve into the heart of an issue in my life, I write about it and then paint from the energy of the place that it has taken me,” said Ms. Gordon, artist. “That has been a regular routine for me.”
She believes each medium gives voice to the issues that come up for her artistically.
“I photograph what I see from my outer eye, I paint what I feel from my inner eye and I write from my heart,” she explained, “what inspires, concerns or perplexes me and am striving to understand.”
However, the journey has not been short or easy.
“I have found that life experiences are like the food we eat — they need digesting,” she added. “Some seem inconsequential and move easily through us. Other slam into us. We feel indigestion.”
But, ultimately, Ms. Gordon uses the emotional energy coursing through her body as an energetic experience to be exhibited through a wide variety of mediums.
She is eager to hear from the community about how her artwork makes others feel.
“I have become aware that the emotional and energetic impact our experiences have on us can be short or long-lived,” she concluded.
