“I make visual poems in order to find greater clarity in all that surrounds me. My work depicts ideas that consistently hold my attention: like empathy, time, transmutation, and perception. Metaphors that come from researching these scientific and philosophical tenets are woven into my pieces. The concepts–and the images they lead to–help me understand living as a human in a wildly complex, interconnected and social environment. Translating ideas into images provides an external armature on which to hang my thoughts, and ideally allows for a fruitful public discourse. In a way, I am making a catalogue of new ways of thinking, that taken together may allow for a resonant levity or evolution of our animating spirit. Even if this only occurs for a moment, it can still leave a permanent mark.” ~ Annalise Neil
