Cathy Clemensen takes 3rd place in the “Abstract My World” Show (Traditional Art Category)!
Cathy Clemensen from USA takes 3rd Place in the Traditional Art category of our “Abstract My World” show with her work “ModScape”! Great feedback from our juror Robert MacNeil: “While many pieces had a story to tell, this piece was very calming, almost peaceful with a Dali-esque feel. I felt as though I was lying on the grass watching the flowers and following the path of a bee. Great piece. Colour play and control in my mind makes this a wonderful image.”
“I just want the world to be interesting…and interesting to look at.
I see each day as a chance to generate something new; a chance to actualize my crazy ideas. I have a long, bizarre relationship with creativity, and I wouldn’t have it any other way. Even in grade school I was voted most likely to be an artist.
My primary muse is nature. Not just the physical world, but the disposition of human weirdness. I am always interested in something strange and I thrive on funny occurrences.
Every project is different and I totally love to experiment, but I usually come back to my favorites. Film photography, watercolor, mixed media, and digital photography.”
