Pieces of Me.
PIECES of ME by Artist R.L. Gibson ©2007-2016
Series explores the physical reality of my reverence for human potential. “Self as Other“ and “Other as Self” as reoccurring content. As such, this series of works often unintentionally reveals Gibson’s own nature as an artist, as a woman, as a human –both virtue and vice.
“I am an Humanist—that is, I believe in both the objective responsibility and the inherent possibilities that lie within each individual. I find beauty in free will but honor the power of heredity. This belief is clearly reflected in my work, from color to content. My own stereotypical American optimistic need to honor the best of human potential also reveals my worst frailties. The delicious irony doesn’t make room for an end to this series.” –R.L. Gibson
