Martha Chason-Sokol

Artmaking is both pure joy and painful reckoning. The practice of drawing anchors me. ​I use paint, ink, thread, markers, words, boxes and books to hear myself think. Through shape and line, I discover the structure, the flow, the breath of each piece. I watch the surface as forms emerge, disappear and transform into story. I paint organically, automatically and emotionally. Color deepens the conversation; it can be subtle, dark, funny, mad or exciting. My work is nonverbal conversation without referencing the external world.

Creating conversation through art, I ask you to look, ponder, and listen.
