Auxier's artist statement for "Unstrung"
Life's problems are often complicated, messy tangles that restrict and disappoint us. In the middle of a conflict, for example, I usually think of the situation as so much unnecessary frustration, often without a clear path to resolution. Like chaotic twists of rope or a tangled skein of yarn, what should be easy becomes laborious and seems useless.
At first glance our life tangles are not like the colored and luminous fibers on these canvases. However, despite surface appearances, within the knots and complexities we face in life is the mark of redemptive possibilities. In this series of paintings, the flowing colors and patterns visually speak to a purposeful and even beautiful rhythm that underlies the difficult places we journey through.
