Mycah Higley
Artist Statement

Place defines us. We are shaped by the culture of the town we grew up in, we change with the beliefs of a new city we move to, and look forward to a perfect place that will always be better than the last. Some people stay in one town their entire life, and others never stop moving. I am particularly obsessed with place. I chose to depict abstracted landscapes to places I have been to show how they affected me emotionally, spiritually, and physically.
