Artist Statement

GROUNDED

We are all collaborators. Art is a response to the world around and within us. Whether presenting a semblance of reality or a study of patterns repeated and recalled, the relationships are interwoven. Nature's handiwork impresses and informs all matter–present and passed, permanent and ephemeral, physical and virtual. Layers of materials and memories create perceptual and spiritual relationships that serve as a locus for grounding, recognition, and solace. Using clay, sand, shell, wood, plastics, resins, and pigments, each piece layers and abstracts traditional and non-traditional mediums bringing the place from which they came into the work. Witkowski explores the interaction and juxtaposition of materials to recall the shared experiences grounded in each of us.
