Kim Lashley-Sutliff ARTIST STATEMENT: I am an artist that is involved in many forms of art. I enjoy painting in oils and acrylics, creating collages with various materials, weaving, sculpting and ceramics. My art is more objective and abstract and I enjoy creating different series of pieces such as “Portraits of Feet”, “Women with Chairs”, and “Ceramic Vessels with Birds”. I like to experiment with new materials and have recently become interested in using recycled materials when I can in my art. Using used, books, old newspapers, scanning old photos, magazine paper and discarded “junk” is incorporated in my art. I feel it gives it some history and interest as well as being good for the environment. My latest series is a collection of old mug shots from around the 1920’s that I found. The mug shots are not traditional looking compared to today’s style, they are more like portraits. I used recycled doors from a large cabinet, recycled paper to adhere to them along with the scanned photographs. I then used found objects from my collection of discarded items as well as paper from discarded magazines. My art can be seen at The Market Gallery in downtown Roanoke, VA. Kim Sutliff
