Betty Blayton: Catalog of Works

Blayton, Betty

Artist's statement: "The intent of my work is two-fold: The first is personal, because the act of creating artworks allows me opportunities for meditation and self-reflective thoughts related to life's mysteries and the meaning of being and becoming. The second is to hopefully provide my viewers with opportunities to also engage in meditation and self-reflective thought. I am deeply interested in metaphysical principles, all aspects of religion, mythology, and the science of mind. The act of creating, as in painting and print-making, allows the exploration of techniques for the creation of mood and mindset changes much as in sound and music. The silent two-dimensional image as in abstractions is non-intrusive and allows the individual viewer opportunities to bring forth his/her own individual subconscious thoughts and feelings."
