Artist Statement

The rhythms within Slivinski’s new work, dance in the viewer’s eye. It is a myriad of colors, shapes, and vibration that resonate the soul. Slivinski’s intention is to touch the viewer through their eyes, while connecting the energy to an inner and outer body experience simultaneously.

Lucy Slivinski’s goal like any great artist is to make her work come alive, so that it informs and inspires her viewers to feel and think. This work is intended to be bold and in your face compassionately. She wants the art to move and have those experiencing it to move with it. “Up! Up!” is a study of vibrational forces that instigate our entire purpose in being.

“UP! Up!” is then, now and forever! The artist’s statement is intended to connect with the community and engage them in a life that looks upward toward inspired possibilities of change!
