Abbey Funk - Artist Statement 2015

I am a Conceptual artist. I create with purpose and for a reason.

Through my chosen mediums of Clay and Metal, I express emotions and ideas. I create tangible stories that are always ready to be shared, infinitely patient in their completion. I create environments. I show Truth. I intend for the viewer to Question.

As an artist, I seek constant growth and expansion. I push myself. I love the unknown. Experimentation is my answer for everything. There is beauty in creative failure and ‘mistakes’. Success is never giving up.

“Let yourself be silently drawn by the strange pull of what you really love. It will not lead you astray.”- Rumi
