Victoria Arias: capstone
The artist's statement: As an artist I try to create pieces that contain elements of fantasy yet are cathartic in nature. I use textures and colors reminiscent of dream states to convey subconscious emotions, to help put content in perspective. Lately, I have been experimenting with wearable art, drawn to the way that art an interact with the body, and especially with materials not commonly seen against the skin. I find that I am continually inspired by in the art of Alexander McQueen and Nick Cave.
