Josette Urso
Brooklyn, NY
Neighborhood: Bushwick



ARTIST STATEMENT: In my studio, the outside literally comes in through large windows that look across Brooklyn’s lower lying factory buildings toward the tall grandness of Manhattan. This view merges with a studio interior filled with playful arrangements from my nature and hand-made object collections: rocks, plants, pine-cones, metal and velvet flocked figurines as well as chenille and wire constructions that I often hang in the windows, bringing attention to the spaces between the inside and the outside. Most recently, I am also working in response to a series of haiku-like collage drawings that I started earlier this year. The collisions of the unexpected spaces in the works on paper are further influencing the direction my new oil paintings and watercolors are taking. As in all of my works, I engage in the moment with deep curiosity and in awe of my surroundings. I engage the known as well as the unknown in unforeseen ways. My work is a record of exploration and reflects my inherent energy and reason for living.
