“As an artist, my medium is paint. There is a term in the Japanese language ‘wabi sabi.’ It means (roughly) a celebration and appreciation for human-made objects that have imperfections. In our digital, computerized world, it is possible to create images to near perfection, clean lines, bright colors, and clear edges. I am a painter, so the idea of spending hours in front of a computer to design my art is not nearly as appealing as playing with the color mixtures and placing brush to paper or canvas and developing some wabi sabi results.” – Autumn Cobeland.
