My People
by Carol Hoy

QUESTION: Where do your people come from?

ANSWER: My people come from a sense of “not knowing” which is open to discovery. They present themselves in surprising ways directly and spontaneously out of the medium and from my actions with the medium. I like them best when they are not preconceived but simply arise during the process of working with color and form through paint, wax,  and other mixed media. They can be delightful, mysterious, challenging, terrifying, inspiring, all aspects of my own mind. They serve as a mirror. What I finally discover via their appearance in my life is interdependence, fearlessness and love.
