Speaker: Sara Risley, Milwaukee abstract artist
Greatly influenced by the Expressionists in creating her photography based digital images. She seeks to distort what is in front of her through her camera tempered by her mood. She uses her camera both traditionally and not.
As with Abstract Expressionism, her work evokes questions rather than answers, feelings rather than recognition. It allows the viewer to respond emotionally to movement and shape and color rather than study the technique.
