Debbi Becker – Artist
 
Artist Statement:

I had instantly gravitated to the word “ALCHEMY” as the title of my body of work because of the nature of its meaning and how perfectly I believe it describes what I create. I use distinct approaches which often compliment, each other and work interchangeably. For example, I may use scientific applications in my variance of mediums, however, what evolves from these applications, through a meditative process, involves my relationship to my spiritual state which enables me to ultimately transform my material and mediums into my concept of a panacea of enlightenment and inner revelations.  Even though I have mastered a variety of mediums during my career, I have gravitated to collage, mixed media and most currently abstract art which allows me to develop the widest range of possibilities for this personal expression which may not be commonly identified in symbols or rhetoric. Since moving to Virginia in 2020, my sunlit studio has allowed me to see a different type of nature that has inspired me.   

My personal satisfaction comes from the thoughtful commentary my work evokes as well as spreading the message of getting in touch with your inner spirit through the process of creativity.
