Artist statement: Michael Bush is a self-taught multi-media artist. He experiments with different paint mediums on canvas to push my creative process. Rather than using brushes in his work, he uses unconventional items to move and manipulate the paint. Water also is used in the creation of his work, which brings the fluid motions in his abstractions to life. He is inspired by work with movement and color, he strive to create similar movement and fluidity in his own work. He uses nature as a direct influence in his work as his palette reflects a variation of colors.

From the moment we are born, each of us is continually absorbing and processing information through our senses. This information varies significantly between us based on biology and experience. These layers of information pile up within, connecting and feeding off each other, and accordingly we develop beliefs, passions, biases, judgments, fears and fixations. Unfortunately, this pile-up of layers creates a tunneled vision, which causes us to ignore, obsess over, and misunderstand information. Every individual interprets the same world differently because each of us filters the world through ourselves, which limits our potential reality.
We are rational, linear beings in search of reason, but our experiences are very limited and therefore our perspective is narrow. We judge people, places and situations based on our own layers. In order for there to be growth within, one must learn to observe through a clear point of view. One must learn to see through these layers, let go of assumptions and judgments, to understand things for what they truly are.
Natalia Sanchez was born in Bayamon, Puerto Rico in 1992. After graduating high school, on the basis of very impulsive decisions, she left everything she'd ever known behind. From the small Caribbean island she moved to Columbus, Ohio, where she graduated from the Columbus College of Art and Design in May of 2015, earning a bachelors degree in Fine Arts with a Minor in Art Therapy.
Sanchez exhibited at Shadowbox live through RawArtist in an exhibition called Revolution in 2014. In 2015, she had a solo-exhibition called “Union of the Opposites” at Haiku Poetic Food and Art in Columbus, OH. Her most recent body of work was shown at the Sean Christopher Gallery in Columbus, OH in a duo-exhibition called “Ebb and Flow” for the month of November in 2016.
Natalia Sanchez is interested in exploring inner realities, deeper than just the external world of surface form and ordinary three-dimensional space. Her external, representational forms help her ground her abstract concepts, which develop into surreal, psychological realms .
