“Sospirando” by Siri Stensberg
Oil on canvas (2018), 24” x 36”
Siri Stensberg, who is originally from Appleton, is currently a student at UW-Eau Claire pursuing a double major in art and music.
“A jazz musician uses a vocabulary of melody, rhythm, harmony, and timbre to improvise a cohesive solo. Similarly, in this painting process I utilize my vocabulary of color, form, mark, and line to create a cohesive idea on the canvas. This series reflects both a visceral process of applying paint to a surface and an intuitive process of composing and reacting to marks on the picture plane.” – The Artist
