Anne-Marie Lavigne
Brooklyn, NY
Neighborhood: Greenpoint



ARTIST STATEMENT:
Note to self - Process
1. The work is the reflection of who you are at a certain moment in time and space.
2. When you try to translate a rational analysis of your state of mind into a work of art, it generates empty and overly slick art.
3. When the creation process is split into two separate phases, self-analysis then creation, it prevents your sensitivity from entering into dialogue with the materials.
4. The process has to be organized in respect to the conditions of the materials. Every time you plan your process thinking of time and space instead of the materials, you end up losing time and misusing space.
5. Efficacy and precision depend on your capacity to read and align your consciousness to the perfect pace demanded by every gesture’s intention.
6. When the execution of every gesture is instinctive, when there is not delay imposed by the rational mind, your body thinks and your thoughts are embodied.
7. Finding the right amount of time for each task and breaking them down into repeatable sequences generates a context for a balanced dialogue with the Self and the materials.
8. This structured process is essential for your spontaneity to arise and make genuine artwork possible. Then, the rational self gives way to the expression of the core of who you are.
9. The core of who you are is a combination of your emotional history and the technological framework you evolve in.
10. Technology is a perspective. It is rendered visible through our relationship with the manifest and the tactile.
