Featured Artist of the Month
10% of this month's proceeds will go to her efforts towards creative living!
My name is Mara Droppers and I am a 22 year old from Orlando, FL.
My interests in art are always changing, yet recently I have been simply enjoying the process of creating. To me art is a way to think deeply and act on curiosity as well as an act of play. In the simplest form I would consider myself an artist who thrives in making connections through various medias. I enjoy the complexity of filmmaking and challenge of expressing 3 dimensional ideas in a 2 dimensional space. Recently I have grown to become intrigued in how video and sculpture can be paired together as an act of poetry. Poetry to me is the process of taking something experienced (3D) and creating a written (2D) image. The images that we create with our words in poetry build the poem, they are the material. In a similar sense I am exploring how to invert this process to use 3D forms in sculpture to communicate a more 2D narrative in a poetic nature.
I also dabble in poetry, but I am no expert.
All that aside, I am a soon to be college graduate who has little to no idea what the future will hold. I am marrying my best friend in 5 months (woot! woot!) and I hope to become a (more serious) freelance filmmaker in the near future.
