HEATHER ARENAS MAGENTA
I am not what you would call “a slave to local color.” Magenta is an exploration of complementary colors and dramatic composition. She is a loose interpretation of the figure while using gesture to express beauty. My goal is to build a composition that can draw people from across a room. For my recent work, I’m embracing my inner contemporary artist. In particular, I am emphasizing line and pattern in more direct ways. I’m having the most fun I’ve ever had in my career because I’ve stopped worrying what anyone thinks and am diving in head first to express my emotions with paint. I am telling stories that come from my life and experiences.
