Thelma Appel Artist Statement For This Exhibition: As an artist, I delve deep into my own imagination, to come up with images that were already in my mind, of people I knew or made up. Of compositions I conjured as theatrically as I could in order to visually express an archetype, or a symbolic situation that could apply to any person at a particular juncture in life. My art, as well as my life are yet a work in progress.
