Elizabeth Darrow: Artists Statement

Elizabeth DarowFor me, becoming engaged in, and carried along by the process, is what making art is all about. My paintings, as well as collages, emerge from the process itself, rather than from any preconceived plan of mine. My only 'plan' when embarking on a canvas is to layer colorful, gestural strokes of paint. My task then is to impose order to this initial chaos. The process moves itself along, taking unexpected turns as various shapes and colors are added to the equation. Out of a succession of layers an image emerges. In the tradition of Abstract Expressionism, discovery comes through the process itself.
