VICKI DANIEL ARTIST STATEMENT The power, mystery and perfection of the female form intrigue me. The form continues to reveal itself spontaneously in much of my work. No matter how much Ive studied the pieces, I know there will always be something more to be discovered about these women. The creative process and artistic expression are hugely transformative for me. Memories, dreams, humor, desires, passion, emotions, music, and movement influence my art. I often begin a piece with the title, many derived from bits of conversations, or lyrics from songs, and from there the work evolves. I employ a method of acrylic painting using strong colors, lots of texture and multiple transparent layers through which words and symbols appear and disappear, and messages are buried or obscured.
