Showcase & Discover Creative Work

Megan Liggett

Chester, NJ, USA
Experiences that come and go in everyday places can cause moments of transitory soul-searching and unexpected spiritual grounding. Moments such as waiting for a train creates mental space to contemplate life, just as the phenomenon of readying an arrow with concentration and practiced ease before releasing that energy clears the mind to questions. These are the kind of transitory moments I seek to capture in my paintings to create a map of memories; colliding and coming together like a collage or scrapbook through installation. By paying homage to these connections, I hope to individualize, yet integrate others experiences and memories with my own.
