Stacy Crane (scrane)
Artist Statement (2009)
The basis of my art practice and creative process explores the natural landscape in relation to urbanization and the layering of environmental spaces. I seek to articulate the material world through both two-dimensional and three-dimensional works. Within that framework I research symbolic meaning through the iconography of forms, personal histories and explored spaces.
The imagery of my work references ritualistic practice as process in the creation of sculptural forms, which are symbolic of self-explored natural landscapes. I look to my exploration in these spaces to transform my emotional and physical experiences into visual language. Through the act of creation a history of mark-making is developed, representative of physical space and the spirituality that is present in both art and the natural world.
