"After a mural is finished, people will begin to picnic in front of the painting. It is almost impossible not to look at it if you are passing by. Whereas in an indoor space, you only enter if you intend to. There is less opportunity for encountering the artwork."
"My paintings are allegorical, but I expect each viewer will bring their own interpretation to a piece. The question one asks depends on the individual interpretation. If it’s a superficial read of literal abuse or abasement, then that is the subject being addressed within the viewer. If there is a more complex interpretation stemming from one’s life experiences, then the piece becomes personal, and asks questions the viewer is interested in answering."
"I was a little surprised to hear so many people express that they perceive my pieces as being intentionally disturbing. Wanting to explore the workings of the unconscious tends to make people feel uncomfortable. They imagine death...I like to think of insects caught in amber."
"There may not be a single topic we all might be well served to address, but there is The Poem each of us needs to write."
~Peg Boyers, poet
"If you as a child would approve of how you live your life, then you’re doing it right."
~Henrik Aarrestad Uldalen, painter, Oslo, Norway
"I suppose 'fear of death' has kind of turned into somewhat of an obsession, and recently it's coming out a lot more and my research is definitely getting deeper, exploring other cultures' ways of dealing with death and life, for example, reincarnation."
