In my work there can be no final "this means that." It is my belief that which sustains in painting is the evocative; that which calls to mind both the artist and the viewer. My aim is to evoke a sense of the unknown where final meaning is withheld, thus the mind is incited to allow a journey beyond ourselves toward that which we sense but cannot explain; that which we know but cannot prove.
German born Irene Belknap received a BA degree in History of Art and an MFA from the San Francisco Art Institute. “Painting is like poetry,” says Belknap, “it allows for simultaneity of meaning.” Entanglements is a giclée print limited edition of 150 signed and numbered by the artist, available on paper or canvas.
