Sarah Prinsloo, Shamokin Member Since August 2017 Artist Statement Creative Chaos Collective is not a matter of creating chaotic art, but rather creating art in the middle of chaos. I have always compared life to the ocean: it can be calm, exhilarating, or terrifying; depending the circumstances.
Wading into the waters may result in getting hit wave after wave, ending in discouragement and burnout, like so often seen in life. Yet if we get past the breaker, we are able to assess the movement and patterns of the waves, allowing us to form to the rhythm of the sea. Each day, we are faced with a choice: to retreat away from the waves or to go deeper.
This collective is an expression of my trusting in God, An act of wading into the depths of unfamiliarity, Going further than I ever have been been before; To be creative in the midst of chaos.
No matter what I create; No matter what it looks like, I know that I am driven to not let the waves pummel me, but to become one with the life I have been granted by a loving Father that is my anchor. I will use what I have been given, and I will learn to dive into the depths.
