Billings First Congregational Church (BFC), 310 North 27th Street, welcomes artist Samantha Arave
What I create comes from a place of experimentation, play, and personal exploration. The resulting viewer experiences are their own. Neither of us require the validation of the other’s thoughts or interpretation. Please enjoy or disregard as you choose.
Through the process of first allowing the medium to organically create shapes, then adding layers of information, manipulating the information by wantonly removing or shifting the medium, there becomes subsequent focal points of interest as the view moves in the intimate space of the work and as they physically distance themselves. The tension of what is center and specific, the ambiguity of where the primary composition ends, and the background resumes is a well-prepared understudy waiting for failure of the performer. The experience is owned only by the viewer, and the artist surrenders themselves to the concept.
