Blissful Deletion

by Willow Margarita Schafer

Regarding her work, the artist says:

I’ve always loved art that makes a person think. I try to create art that has multiple meanings, or a meaning that can be interpreted in various ways by different people, because I think artistic expression is a strong reflection of the mind. It has many different facets, unspoken thoughts, and a certain façade that presents itself to the public world. For this piece in particular, I wanted to try and visually depict what nothingness feels like on a human level: a sort of calm fragmentation that is very hard to shake.

Willow Schafer grew up in a rural town in north-eastern Ohio until she and her family moved to Florida where she discovered her love of art after getting involved in an art class. Since then, she’s been working towards several goals such as the publication of artwork, short stories, and novels, as well as obtaining a PhD in forensic science. After traveling around the continental United States with her family and studying in Spain for three months, she found herself inspired by the surreal and the symbolic.
