“My images are hybrids – pastiched images which hint at a narrative. I use disparate elements, drawn from a variety of sources: familiar and foreign, old and new, ceremonial and utilitarian, etc. Media-wise, I work usually in a mixed media mode, making use of gritty relationships possible through contrasting materials and styles.” – Kathleen Shanahan
“…I believe that art making and the appreciation of art are profoundly important activities. As our society becomes increasingly inundated with technology, I believe that the beautiful handmade object will gain in value-intrinsic and economic-and importance. As life becomes more complex, art will continue to serve as an essential, visceral and therapeutic connection to the wonder of our humanity.” – Marko Fields
