Artist Statement and Bio
928 606 7389
As an artist Frederica follows a multi disciplinary approach, working primarily in visual arts, that sources performance-art, and vice versa. Her work is informed by the mysterious surrounding cosmos, reflections
on myth and metaphor, humanities uncharted origins, ancient and contemporary Healing Arts, as well as engaging perspectives explored through artistic inquiry that encompasses challenging matters of truth, health, politics, religious beliefs, social customs, cultural relevance, societies identities, and the
transformative process that unfolds.
Her paintings, capture in layers of light and color, emotional experiences, of sorrows and joys reaching for new visions to life’s labyrinths.
Her 'performance art' utilizes, voice, movement, costume, puppetry and installation, capturing life's continually poignant moments, evoking in herself and the viewer unique creative perspectives into our perceptual experiences of this mysterious 'Now'.
"I especially like to create art on the edge of moonlight between the real and unreal, where enlightening thoughts fill the dark, Some of the wonders that inspire me are, the endless reaches of space filled with stars, suns, planets nebula's, incalculable, synchronicitiy & phenomenon, ancient megalithic ruins, undecipherable glyphs and artifacts, miraculous movement of rain and the ways snow floats and ice melts and the never ending mysteries that touch our lives.
I seek what is relevant, what evokes enquiry and reflection, seeking boundless illuminating Art, that opens our hearts, evoking transformation."
