About the Artwork:
From the moment we bloomed, I felt them inside
The mushrooms, the whispers, and the choice to be wild
This piece is about embracing the fluidity of oneself. Often, we feel the obligation to stay focused on a specific path, or a singular version of who we are. Our paths are filled with wonderful, winding surprises and unexpected forks and when we ignore them, plowing stubbornly ahead, we miss out on so much of the curiosity of exploration and the potential to find even greater things. It is so very okay not to be just one thing, not to keep the same career for a lifetime, the same interests, or even the same sense of self. Embrace your fluidity in whatever form it comes and learn to be curious again.
About the Artist:
My name is Aria Fawn and I am a self-taught artist working full-time out of my home studio. Though born in the otherworlds, I was mostly raised in Colorado where I live to this day ?
My oneiric, dark and surreal art style is inspired by dreams, nature, and nostalgia.
My work mainly features animals with whom I seek to tell stories and offer an open discussion with the viewer.
Much of my work also deals with emotional underlying subjects surrounding mental health and difficult life situations portrayed through fantasy. My aim is to capture real and identifiable human emotions through animal fables, and give viewers a sense of sanctuary.
Aside from nature and animals, music has perhaps one of the most immense influences on my work, which has led to me getting to work on a number of album covers for musicians all over the world.
On the occasions I am not locked away in the studio, I spend my time exploring the otherworldly planes of the earth with my canine familiar, Shinigami, or else writing, sculpting, and obsessing lovingly over dead things.
