Destiny Allison On Our Santa Fe Watchlist
My work is conceptual. I begin each piece with a question, usually related to human roles or relationships. I examine myths, symbols, and the origins of how we define ourselves. Sometimes, my work takes me deep into personal experience as I try to understand events in my life. Other times, my work requires me to be more academic. I study history, philosophy, religion and the origin of words to understand the things that have shaped me. I do not believe that art is merely a reflection of what we see in the world.
