About the exhibition
The process of making and viewing art is influenced by our thoughts and emotions. Happy, anxious, confident, scared—these things show up in our own art as well as our interpretations of art made by others. Reflecting on our emotional reactions to art can help us learn more about our inner worlds.
For me, the following artworks are especially evocative. Lines vibrate with energy, moody forms loom against bright backdrops, shapes are traced meticulously, and words dance down the page.
How does each piece make you feel?
