Hsiao-Lan Rodgers is an artist, free verse poet and author.
An obstacle in life has taken her on an artistic journey where she has found another passion, and a way to embrace creativity.
With absolute freedom, she presents herself as the creator, the observer, the speaker and the listener.
All acrylic pouring creations are made by using various poured-acrylic techniques, with the pouring medium she has constituted herself; such process does not require paintbrushes and generally takes at least several weeks to complete.
She caresses a strange appreciation for imperfections; depending on the piece, there are moments she would offer it a smooth-finished surface, or purposely create ripples, bumps and cracks; all existence have its own purpose.
Marker illustrations, a form of intricate artwork based on spontaneously chosen, made dots, shapes and lines, by using various types of marker. It begins with a little seed of thought, without any firm planning, eventually what comes through at the end, is simply what it is meant to be.
Hsiao-Lan Rodgers signs her signature on the back of the art piece, with or without a title. The intention is to offer complete freedom to everyone, including the art piece orientation. If the piece speaks to one's soul when it is upside down, perhaps hanging it upside down would be an amazing choice.
"Every single piece made, is completely personal. For the rest, it is simply an opportunity to contemplate, to connect to, or simply feel understood.
Do not analyze. What you perceive from these creations is merely a mirror; what reflects on you is your own truth and reality.
Documenting this human experience, one paint drop, one word at a time.
THANK YOU for the attempt of accepting all artworks and I as what/who we are.
