About the Artwork:
“EXTRACTION OF THE ESSENCE focuses on the language of interconnection by tapping into the immeasurable. There is complexity in both order and chaos, though recognizing that this relationship is the most basic fundamental energy to life, is crucial. Such invisible energy feels so expansive, both outwardly and inwardly, in a dance with those connections we share with living things, as well as with the ultimate unknown.
Depending on how you view the piece, as either a gift or a receipt, the natural balance of particles stretches infinitely into the universe. Nature is the ultimate architect of such curious alchemy.” – Cassidy Rae Marietta
About the Artist:
I’m an illustrator and fine artist working out of my home studio in Columbus, Ohio. With sheets of velvety hues, ornate designs, and expressive figurative elements, I am focused on creating striking images that showcase the modern woman, dotted with botany and psychedelia. Recurring themes in my work include censorship, social normality, and the raw and undying characteristics of human nature.
