Denise Gasser

This weeks Art W**k  guest is Denise Gasser a fine artist, art facilitator, and mother of four young boys. She lives in Utah with her husband and kids.
.
Denise put on an exhibition called Art After, which we loved - here’s what it’s about -
.
‘I began this series in 2014 when mothering and art-making began to feel impossible. I didn’t have the time and energy to make art, but I also knew I would be miserable if I quit. This project is my attempt to reconcile these roles. I make small paintings and only work on each one until I get interrupted, which never takes long at my house! I document the times and interruptions on the backs—little glimpses into life behind the scenes, bum wipes and all.  As the pieces accumulated I began sharing the project on Instagram where it has found a global audience and sparked a larger conversation about the challenges and joys of being an artist/mother. In 2019 Art After had a successful gallery debut in Vancouver BC.’
.
We had such an inspired chat with Denise about how she fits it all in, her ‘Art After’ exhibition and how she goes about making a painting. You’ll be so inspired after listening and if you’ve got kids, lots of ideas to get your art done!
