E.B. FROMKES ART AND LIFE

I USE MY ARTISTIC VOICE TO SHARE A TALE OF THE UNSEEN, SHOWCASE ABILITY FOUND WITHIN DISABILITY AND DOCUMENT DAILY LIFE. MANY WORKS THAT TRANSPIRE RELATE TO MY EXPERIENCES WITH MSIDS, LYME & CO-INFECTIONS. I CREATE MOVEMENT AND FLOW IN MY PIECES BY COMBINING PAINTING AND COLLAGE. CUTS OF PAPER SCRAPS PASTED INTO BACKGROUNDS SUPPORT MY IMAGERY AND BITS LEFT EXPOSED AID IN STORY TELLING, LENDING EVERY WORK A TIME CAPSULE-LIKE FEELING. SYMBOLS AND FRAGMENTS THAT FILL MY WORLD BECOME VISUAL HISTORIES. WHEN PIECED TOGETHER YEARS FROM NOW, THESE CAPTURED MOMENTS WILL SERVE TO ILLUSTRATE MY LIFE. BROWN PAPER BAGS ARE SUBSTRATES THAT I LOVE TO WORK ON IN ADDITION TO TRADITIONAL CANVAS PAINTINGS.

THE NEED AND WILL TO MAKE ART

DISC HERNIATIONS CAUSED FROM LYME HAVE RESULTED IN TWO SPINAL SURGERIES & YEARS OF LIMITED MOBILITY. PUSHING THROUGH THE PAIN TO CREATE ART IS FREEDOM
