Artist Statement of Kristen Neudorf

"Life is too short not to do what you love. Art is my ‘raison d’être’, my passion in life! My artwork is a personal reflection of my experiences and emotions.

The very process of creating inspires me. Nature and music are my companions as concepts flow from inspiration and take form. A well-worn chair in the window of a Paris shop, the flowing lines of the female form, the abstract meanderings of a traveller on the Scribbly Gum eucalyptus tree are but a few of the influences I draw from.

Like every artist who is gifted with a dark night of the soul, unforeseen events endowed me with an invitation to create from outside my comfort zone. 
A new way of creating my art emerged. I became technically stronger as the creative process beckoned me to evolve, and breakthrough to another level. I began to feel my way through my work and my actions became instinctive.

I continue to work this way today. My work is a combination of form and control merged with expression, intuition and passion."

Art is my passion, love and my purpose. With art I am traveling without moving.
