Artist Statement & CV

"Abstract, eye-rubbing colors and extreme softness are visual elements of my work. The feeling of gum being peeled by a shoe from the ground, the wrinkle of tinsel in the wind," explains Culver.  "I work with themes of fertility and life, pushing feelings through color. Color is the main drive of my work.

"I use abstract forms since color is not something particularly maintained through a specific shape but perceived by a feeling. I like when it’s hard to look away with colors so intense and considered. Or more of the idea you want to keep looking. I work with the themes of femininity through symbols and abstraction along with color. It’s about self-awareness as well as worship. I love to show the power of being human with work that is sensitive and slightly unnerving. Raised by women and in a household surrounded by art history and history teachings, the sorrows and strength of women have always interested me; to show them in a way that isn’t a nude done by a man. I’ve always wanted to make things beautiful. I knew it was a vague dream but attainable in every little way. That drive always led me to painting, which I find the most intimate practice between artist and work. Nothing I do is ever too clean or measured. The mistakes and role of being human always comes into play. Abstract art has always held my attraction. Fields of color and unfocused things. Pieces I could always escape to. Pieces with and endless story. It’s the same idea for my work, as someone who embraces change and looks for newness everyday. I wish to make work that lives through everything."
