"I love to constantly create and work with my hands. I am completely fascinated with creating artwork - I love how paper absorbs pigment or how it layers pastel dust. Whether it is drawing with charcoal, splattering paint onto canvas or smearing ink onto handmade paper, I love creating color and texture. I have a background in painting and printmaking (particularly relief cut). I love to experiment with collage, utilizing and playing with different mediums to create patterns through the use of line work and blending colors.
I am intrigued with the study and language of the human figure. I love to draw and paint portraits, and pair these figures with inorganic abstracted backgrounds. Gustav Klimt’s artwork is completely inspiring and intriguing to me. I appreciate how he had abandoned historical subject matter and realism to approach his interest in creating decorative art. Klimt’s artwork pushed boundaries of radical ideas that presented an ethereal atmosphere with the use of abstraction, erotic drawings and fine detail. I strive to push those same boundaries with my work." Megan Bloesch
