The Juxtaposition of boundaries and freedom- Brooke Shaden

I always like to start my week by looking at an awesome piece of art work. It seems to set the tone for what’s to come. I woke up really feeling like this was a day of chaos, but I found artist Brooke Shaden  who seems to give me a strength to center myself. Her works give an etherial freedom, but at the same time, the bounds of emotion. I think pieces that are the most powerful have juxtaposing character which builds the dynamic of the work.

“Within the space of a square frame, I try to build a world that is undeniably separate from the one we live in.” -Shaden
Shaden’s pieces fulfill my need to delve into endless possibilities, but to be cautious in my endeavors. When you come across works of art this week, ask yourself, what it is that draws you to them. Why do you keep coming back to view them, or why not? How does the piece relate to your emotion or life at that particular moment? The artwork we love is ever evolving and if it is not, then reach within and push yourself to view works outside your comfort zone. It will help you evolve as a person.
