Angela Willcocks

My art is based in the fundamentals of drawing,  painting and my daily experiences.  Whether my medium is digital or analog I am exploring the crossover between medium and message.  Each painting is created over many months, the paint is embedded with my emotions with strokes clashing with shapes and colors layered, they seem all over the place, yet offer a sense of unity for my memories.

My recent work is a series of portraits from my local community. As an american immigrant I am interested in the very micro community, those individuals that play a huge role in the local economy and are our cultural essence. Through my art I am exploring the way we judge each other and how that affects our interactions within and between communities. Working with the public, I use my art where the unseen become seen, the haves see the have-nots, the displaced connect with the establishment and the public becomes private. Each project is unique in medium and message different.
