Questions for the Artists

What best describes the work you’ve chosen to display at the Library?

What do you find inspires you to create your art? 

Has Covid-19 changed you as an artist?

Carrie Barcomb

  • The work I’ve chosen features local scenes around Delaware County. I love spending time at Tyler Arboretum on their trails and gardens. I’ve also included two from Kuerner Farm in Chadd’s Ford, and one inspired by downtown Media. 
  • Being outdoors in Nature inspires me to create. I hope to document and convey the beauty of my surroundings, in order to illustrate a story about the location. 
  • After everything shut down I had little interest in creating. I worked to redirect my energy to create works that benefited various causes. This gave me the energy and motivation to take time to focus and better define my goals, and what I truly care about. Because the environment is important to me, I’m continuing to pursue landscape paintings, developing illustration work inspired by the environment, and digging deeper into our local ecology expressing interrelated patterns, processes, flora, fauna and ecosystems in fields and forests through abstract works.

Frank McCann

  • As for what inspires me, I don’t really get inspired it just happens.
  • I chose these works because I was having a hard time finding work that was suitable for public display in a library.
  • I dug deep in my archives to find work that i had not displayed at MAC at the library.
  • It has not changed the way I work but it has changed the way I display my work. I have only displayed one piece publicly since the lockdown last year.

Patricia Danzon

  • This work displays landscapes and cityscapes. The common themes are light, structure and a sense of place. I use infra red to enhance the old world feel in images where this captures the mood.
  • I am inspired by natural beauty and manmade scenes. Sometimes it is a natural landscape, other images capture small vignettes in a busy urban scene, as in the two NYC images included here.
  • Covid-19 has made me focus on the beauty of smaller scenes closer to home, while also seeing them in the context of the wider world. Every place has its treasures.Carr
