Barbara Dirnbach, Artist Statement
The journey to find my voice as an artist began as an art student in the New York scene of the ‘60s and resumed in the last decade.
Incorporating artistic ideas and techniques, past and present, is important in order to stay grounded in tradition but not be limited by it. Every day I embrace goals that I set for myself as an artist by taking chances and delving into unknown territory using various materials, textures, and scale, to convey strong emotions.
I must explore my inner world and express my ideas by choosing subjects and images that are personal and meaningful to me. My intention is for every piece of art to tell a bold story through composition, design, and color.
Creating art gives me a sense of purpose, achievement, and excitement. I hope the journey will never end.
