STATEMENT

 

Drawing on urban and natural elements Shakti Kroopkin blends abstract space with the energy of Street Art to create visionary worlds of limitless possibility. Born and raised on the South Side of Chicago, Shakti merges influences of city life, music, art and culture with the beauty and vastness of Northern New Mexico’s high desert, where she currently resides. Her intuitive work, free from the constraints of logic, gravity, and reality, allow polarities to find balance between the real and the imagined. A crescendo of color and movement invite the viewer to explore emotion, memory, and the free association of the creative process. Raw strokes and primitive symbolism combine in a new field of human experience and imagination.

Shakti finds art to be transformational for both painter and viewer.  Imagination shifts space and thought, changes limited perspectives into wonderment, and wakes our connection to life force energy.
