Bulbs with Pansy by Helen Meyrowitz | Artscope Magazine
art: Bulbs with Pansy
artist: Helen Meyrowitz
medium: drawing

“Otto Rank in his book – ‘Art and Artists’ tells us that art is often born out of a fear of loss and change. In late 2002, I became an up-rooted New York artist in the throes of a very real fear of change and loss due to an unexpected move to Massachusetts. A subsequent series of mixed media drawings of bulbs reaching, striving to put down new roots to grow and eventually flower is my chosen metaphor for my personal effort to create a new beginning. Otto Rank understood that creative challenge.”
