About the visual artist-
Vara has been expanding her creative focus through automatist practices of meditation, working in the vein of the psychology of reflex action. Vara’s new work forms a practice of tactile dimension using common object as vessel for memory. The vessels energy creates new contextual experience or stimulates memory. Vara has chosen the automobile hubcap to work through which has led on an explosive and exciting creative journey, building dialogs in sculpture, performance, canvas paintings and photography. The canvases sensual and poetic images created with tar as paint and hubcap as bush convey movement into the passionate unconscious and allow the viewer a personal experience. The installation is deliberate because Vara wants the viewer to free themselves from the weight of societal drudgery creating a personal experience memory space.
