As an artist, I find it necessary to be inventive, self-expressive, searching, daring, even disturbing, and in doing so, I am hoping to enlighten others and open ways for a better understanding of my art. I am fascinated by the variety, complexity, beauty, and seduction of abstract art and have always been intrigued by surrealism. My work is based on abstract (not to be mistaken for non-objective art) and is a translation of a real life experience, a thought, a dream, and is a complete exaggeration of my perception of reality. It can create a new feeling, vision, or experience that exists outside of the rules of realism. With love, Angela Gegg.. PROSHKA
HER BODY DISMORPHIC COLLECTION
This is a collection of paintings based entirely on my perception of the human form and in retrospect, myself. It is my twisted and ‘dismorphic’ view of what human bodies look like – many times with enormous legs/ stomachs/breasts/hair and in most cases, with ribs protruding out of their form. Human ribs are quite a common thing In my works/these pieces/this art Of mine! I have several variations and most often utilize the female form to create my so called artistic masterpieces.
ABSTRACT LINEAR LAYERING COLLECTION
Abstract Linear Layering, is a collection of paintings, composed and created by applying layer upon layer upon layer upon layer and, yes, even more layers of paint. This is a very time consuming process as drying time is involved. Each layer must be done separately, and must be completely dry before I can add another layer. The linear movements in and on the paintings are precise, sharp, and clear, it is a very organized process.
"Art of Caribbean Calindar" Artwork
This is a series in which I utilize canvas, paper, my digital photography and manipulate the art with multiple mediums. For phptos I use different programs, spending hours at a time testing/teasing/taunting the images so as to distort/enhance/manipulate them. I often change the colors of the original image completely, by adding bright hues into the images, and at often times changing the entire image from its original form. On canvas i pain images that are unlike PROSHKA, and on paper I use differnt shades and shapes to make art.
