New Artist Exhibit — Carolyn Roth

Did you ever wonder why no author is asked to create an image for his book, and yet every visual artist is expected to write an artist statement?

Ironic, as the work of a visual artist is nonverbal and hopefully speaks with its own symbolic language. Why is the visual artist burdened with taking a nonverbal process and putting it into words? For the moment I can only say that living in Rappahannock County has given me space, freedom, nurturance, and quiet as bedrock for creating. The mystery of creating defies words. My hope is that my work evokes a response from the viewer.
