Seen by the Human: by Kajsa Sjodin

Edited Mirror the Soul

 

The Tulsa Artists’ Coalition is pleased to present “Seen by the Human” by Kajsa Sjodin,

June 3 through June 25, 2016.

The public will have the opportunity to meet the artist at the opening reception on Friday June 3, 2016 from 6pm to 9pm. This event is free and open to the public and is part of the Brady Arts District’s First Friday Art Crawl.

Here is how Kajsa Sjodin describes the theme of her artwork: “My works of art reflects and salutes the creative thinking, strength building and the steady growing integrative art and health community in the town of Tulsa, OK as well as on an international level.”

She continues, “My fascination and slight obsession for the human figure throughout my life gathers into a fusion of surrealistic imagery that engages the viewer and have ability to create emotional reactions of all sorts. Figures, figures of all sorts; climbing, walking, meeting, supporting and challenging each other. Fertility, love, human conflicts and emotional release is often used as a starting point when I create. Seeing eyes; like the open road into a strangers soul, the eyes let us connect on very profound levels. There is birth and there is the transition to the afterlife. Seldom remembered, nor easy to translate is this very miracle we all have to go through. The journey in between these extremes is for us to embrace and live to the fullest, without fear of falling! I hope to inspire the viewer to creative thinking and give courage to become leaders that will blaze a unique trail of art and healthy living, using all the given senses. The human figure has been used to express stories and emotions and to reflect the present time from the beginning of times, and can help us today as well as following us in to the future, so we can better connect and become more conscious of the love we hold within for ourselves and others.”
