Artist mention monday “Does this speak to you?”. New song Teaser
Emotive an adjective that describes “a tendency for causing emotion or designed to arouse emotion”. Phenomenal an adjective meaning “remarkable, perceptible by the senses or through immediate experience”. What do you get when you mix the two? an in depth view of an artist’s poetic and visually lyrical soul that has the capability of expanding and enticing ones own true hidden emotions. In lamence terms…one badass artist that has won over yet another one of our Artist Mention Monday’s, before I continue lose yourself for a moment and dive into Art…
Shannon is an Artist | Student | Traditional Artist, from the United States. Plagued by her own senses of overwhelming emotions, this artist has found an innovative an proactive form of releasing her frustrating and mentally draining condition known as anxiety.. Shannon find comfort in Art. The painting above is called “Wrought in worry” in it she describes that her initial concept was “comparing it to my thoughts–my twisted anxiety about nearly everything. Emotional by nature, I tend to care too much–worry too much. About what people think about certain things. About love or passion. About sex. About money issues.” There is few artist that truly give a piece of themselves through art work, most tend to be observers of the world around them. The most innovative and insightful artist are those that spread a piece of their soul in their works, essentially to be criticized. As Trent Reznor (if you dont know who this is SHAME ON YOU) said “well there it is a new record or should I say another piece of my soul, here you go …criticize it.”
One of the most remarkable things that Shannon is able to do is to speak to our inner senses, creating a unique atmosphere and accurately conveying her state of mind in all her works; pure brilliance. It’s evident that Shannon places a part of her soul in each and every one of her paintings and thats what makes her one beautiful person and an innovator in the community of Artistry.
