ARTIST STATEMENT

 

As a self-taught artist, Vigo crystallizes her vitality on the canvas through pearlescent paints, inks, Chyogami papers, stencils, pastels, dried flowers… She borrows from the fashion world is laces, fabrics and glitters.  Her mixed media technique is always in evolution with the use of new materials.Through art she shapes the emotions of everyday life into positive energy. Her work takes the viewer to a world infused with colours that are a vibrant tribute to life itself.  The drippings and the flowers reminds us of time that sweeps away too quickly. These drippings are also so many strings stretched towards the flowers. For Vigo, flowers represents the beauty and the fragility of life but also what life puts on our path. Sometimes an opportunity to seize, a moment to share.  Other times people around us, precious memories or even an obstacle that stands before us.  The vibrant colours and energy expressed in her work reminds us that we must live every moment fully.

Through her spontaneous creativity, the artist brings a reassuring comfort on the canvas of our lives.  When eyes rest on one of her paintings and a smile illuminates a face there is a symbiosis of energy between the viewer and the work.  As Vigo likes to say, « Art that smiles at you is good for your soul ».
