Kramer Mitchell

Kramer Mitchell's development as an artist followed a circuitous route beginning with prose and continuing with poetry and traditional representational art to her current personal and artistic philosophy, which reflects Oliver Wendell Holmes' belief that what lies behind us and ahead are tiny matters compared to what lies within us. In attempting to examine the elusive in art and nature, the artist creates bold dramatic works informed by her awareness of ancient traditions, current realities and future visions.

Mitchell found this emerging vision to be best articulated and celebrated through the experimental process. Her art, a result of creative brooding, finds its expression in both traditional and nontraditional mediums. The artist likens the creative process to "listening to your inner self and then shaping symbols that convey your message." It is a transforming process in which Mitchell draws upon her life experiences, knowledge, and intuition, synthesizing past, present, and future into new creations.

The artist is a signature member of the International Society of Experimental Artists. Her art is exhibited in private collections and her articles and poems have been published in devotional magazines and poetry journals with national and international circulation.

Robe of the Mother

The painting called Robe of the Mother, above, has special meaning for me. It is a collage containing a piece of fabric from a robe, the last gift I received from my mother while she still recognized me. I could not part with it, and decided to use a part of it in the painting. The beautiful flowers, leaves, and grasses on the fabric, the real grass and sand in the collage, the hand spun yarn, all beautiful gifts from the earth, represent her lovely ever-changing robe. The awesome, luminous face symbolizes the ancient wisdom and mystery resident in the wisewomen of today, and the painting serves as a tribute to my mother, to all creative women, and to Mother Earth herself.
