Barbara Wykrota (Barbara W.)
My artistic inspiration comes from my life, the world around me, and from nature. I love to play with color and with texture; I believe that abstraction can speak to everybody and each observer can have their own experience while viewing my work. My creative process begins with the desire to use a specific color palette and not having any definitive composition planned; I never know what the final result will be and I do not plan ahead but instead, freely paint until I feel that the piece is complete.
I express my innermost emotions onto each of my canvases, which are based on my relationships with others and the most significant events that have occurred in my life. I hope to create an opportunity for each person who observes my work to find their own interpretation based on their individual experiences.
