Ink drawing on watercolor paper, framed with poem
“When I let go of what I am, I become what I might be.” ~ Lao Tzu.
Inspired by the time of quarantine, the shift of consciousness that is happening now, the revolution of the Dada movement and the meditation of Sumi-E, this is a series of simple, but powerful drawings using ink, acrylic and pencil on watercolor paper. It is a rebellion against the false ideals that have been handed down to us and kept us in bondage through our minds.
Esther Loopstra is a professional artist, educator, and creative coach whose work is an extension of her perpetual curiosity. Her art has been shown in galleries, used for print ads, editorials, books, stationery products, textiles, and more. Esther holds degrees in Counseling and Illustration and has taught at Kent State University and Cornish College of the Arts. She obsessively studies neuroscience, the creative process, intuition, mindfulness, and the psychology of FLOW. Esther offers one on one sessions and specialized workshops that allow individuals to connect to their intuition and authentic selves so that they can create AMAZING things in this world.
Loopstra’s work takes the viewer on a passage of discovery by weaving through pathways and portals into known and unknown spaces. Cued by nature, her use of light, dark, texture, and line creates a provocative tension. She evokes the brightness of life and the beauty of its dark mystery.
A passionate and curious explorer, Loopstra's art is influenced by ideas of science, consciousness, and the intelligence of the unknown. Her work references both a micro and macro view of the universe by unearthing how the material world resonates with and reflects our ineffable nature through the unseen networks that create and sustain life.
Through an intuitive process, Loopstra’s mixed media paintings unfold like a journey. She flows with her instincts, developing layers, and working back into them, allowing her paintings to change and grow along the way. Each piece evolves in its own time and finds its unique voice. Her technique is a celebration of the ever-changing process that is life itself.
