This book accompanies my one person show of drawings and objects that will open October 9, 2010, at the Blue Dome Gallery in Silver City, NM. Artist statements have always been the bane of my career, so now I have really explored some of my thoughts on art, and my relationship to Art. The images are details of the collages that comprise my exhibition, and the little character of She Sheep, who is introduced in this first book, has been my private autobiographical companion for many years.


About the Author

cece stanford
nmcece Silver City, New Mexico
Many years ago, I invested a dollar in a handwriting analysis, done by computer. Among other things, the analysis gave me the following information: I am impatient when things do not go according to plan; have a clever and calculating mind; a tendency to worry needlessly and could succeed as a critic in dramatic fields. Having spent most of my adult life, at that time, in southern California, it seemed accurate enough. Some of it still is. Factually, I had studied art at the University of Oklahoma, my home state. After a seventeen year hiatus, however, I took a degree in Theater Arts at San Diego State University, then worked as a professional costumer for 18 years, supporting my habit to make art in San Diego. During all of this, I have had the good fortune to take a class with clay guru Phil Cornelius and a traditional mosaic apprenticeship with artist and designer James Hubbell. Both of these creative men greatly influenced my approach to living artfully.

I love this as an artist statement. I don't know you, Cece, but I love your mind, and the way you have expressed yourself.
