Statement / Bio

Marisa was born in 1981 in Jacksonville, Florida. She currently keeps a studio at CoRK Arts District in the Riverside area of Jacksonville.

My work takes up different meanings, depending on where I'm at in the moment. However, common threads are always present, a desire to transfer my own perceptions, thoughts, and vulnerabilities with an authentic voice. I have a hope of communicating with another individual on a level that is further and farther felt, than what can be verbally communicated within seconds of a meeting.

In many of the pieces my choice of perspectives, and subject matter are my way of generating an open-ended dialog with the viewer. A dialog that would not just confirm what is observed, but rather would allow for questioning about what is not presented.
I understand the ambiguity this sometimes presents, but I prefer the way that this allows someone viewing my work to fill in the gaps on his or her own. I rather take you to a place and let you make up your mind, rather than tell you what you should be thinking and feeling while there.
