ARTIST'S STATEMENT

Jessica Snoblen

The words within the image represent the feeling that has overwhelmed my mind since the breath-taking journey to the Fiji Islands. The piece of a memory that will never shatter away like an old mirror, but remain strong, and remind me of the incredible voyage that impacted my life in such amazing ways. For the events that I encountered were completely indescribable- the land, the scene, the people, the atmosphere of just being present in such a feel-good environment.

The idea of stepping in as a stranger and connecting individually with so many others was so fulfilling –we became a part of each other on that trip.

The piece I chose represents the swirling thoughts that move throughout my mind when I reminisce the journey. From the traditional kava to the masi stenciling, to the cascading waterfalls.

The piece is also a dedication to one of the best graffiti artists I have ever had the chance to get acquainted with and call a friend. For my original final project was nearly completed back in August, but as events occur, I was led to a new inspiration and decided to reconsider my project; ended up starting over. I wanted to represent this for, perhaps, one of the only flaws that tainted the experience. I wanted to represent his style that had caught my attention so, from the very first day I had encountered this person, and all his unique ways.

The piece I am presenting is illustrated with pen and ink and rendered in PhotoShop. It is dedicated to one of the most fulfilling experiences of a lifetime, and to Alex White. May him, and everyone that had joined me on the journey out into the unknown, find their true place, and always carry the memory.
