Apperception: Art therapy institute of NC’s November ArtWalk
“Apperception: the mental process by which a person makes sense of an idea by assimilating it to the body of ideas he or she already possesses.” No word better describes the art of Raleigh-native, Mayson Stowers. Trained in impressionistic oil painting, she pushes this and other media beyond traditional boundaries to create work centering on symbolic self-portraiture and self-reflection. She uses vibrant colors, intricate concepts, and fantastical symbolism blended with realistic representations to reveal her own struggles in hopes of encouraging others, explaining complex feelings and mental states through pictorial similes.
