Artist Statement


STEPHEN KING
EXHIBITION NOTES          
 


All of these works illustrate the search for and the facing down of my inner demons and thus finding my true self or my center.
 
Surrounding that center is either the façade constructed to protect one’s self and present to the world that which is wished to be seen, or the reward for facing inner demons, expressed with gold or an egg or sphere representing rebirth.
 
The American native Navajo (Ni’hookaa Diyan Diné or ‘Holy Earth People’) weaver would often weave a single thread of yarn from the center of a rug to the outside edge. This made it possible for the weaver’s spirit to get out of the rug so she could go and weave another. This thread was most often red.
 
Thus the use of red in my work is the presence of my spirit. Often leading the way in and out of the core or sometimes acting as the barrier that must be broken to find my way to enlightenment.
 
This body of work was greatly inspired by a book of fiction I read about an artist Rachel Kelly, who is bipolar. While struggling with the demons of her disease she was nurtured by a loving husband and the quite contemplative surroundings of the Quaker Meeting and was able to fulfill her creative calling.  Patrick Gale writes the book, ‘Notes from an Exhibition’.
 
I am equally nurtured in facing my own demons, with the unconditional love from my partner.
