Open Ocean Art Studio

Kris Neufarth
My artwork continues to evolve, grow, and change. My perception is widening every day, allowing me to process through life experiences, relationships, and the wisdom that I have gained. I have found that choosing to be intentional in my interactions, even something as small and insignificant as a quick conversation with a stranger in the market or on the beach, has considerably influenced and inspired my work. One of my favorite things about creating art has always been the organic opportunities it has provided me to share experiences and exchange stories with others. Recently, I have found myself evaluating how I can connect my old abandoned practices with my current practices in a way that brings the best of both together. I am always pursuing new materials and media that can further express these narratives in both non-traditional and traditional ways.
