Young Artist Alcove

S. D. Roa

Aug 18 - Nov 13, 2022

I paint, write poetry and experiment with different media to ground myself. In the year 2022, I will be turning 17 and I’ve been blessed to be welcomed into this museum twice. My art is a colorful and chaotic mess which depicts the messiness of the human brain, more specifically, my brain. I enjoy the process of experimenting with the pigments and objects on the canvas then, I leave it up to the person to decide their opinions. I, personally, will never be satisfied with the finished product. To me, my paintings can never truly be finished, which is why sometimes it takes me months to complete one piece. Underneath all the layers of every one of my paintings are quotes or articles from magazines, which have inspired me. Although not visible, each piece has a deep meaning.
