PRIDE HAS CREATIVITY !!
Pride Month is an entire month dedicated to the uplifting of LGBTQ voices, celebration of LGBTQ culture and the support of LGBTQ rights. Throughout the month of June, nationwide, there have traditionally been parades, protests, drag performances, live theater and memorials and celebrations of life for members of the community who lost their lives to HIV/AIDS. It is part political activism, part celebration of all the LGBTQ community has achieved over the years.
PRIDE- LIFE Events
We embrace and support The LGBTQ community and plan to continue celebrating and coming up with supportive events to eradicate any discrimination against and uplift creativity through out the community inviting artists and creatives to join us on our creative events follow @quipevents for future PRIDE-LIFE Events.
Pride Month is held every June is to commemorate the Stonewall Riots of 1969, and while it celebrates the progress the LGBTQIA+ community has made, it also serves to commemorates the community’s tragic losses of to many crimes.
Pride Month serves as a reminder that everyone should be equal no matter their sexuality or gender. We think of the strong and proud men, women, trans men, trans women, and non-binary people of the LGBTQIA community and how they inspire us in continue to fight for equality and freedoms.
My name is Valera. I often go by the nickname Val. I’m a Fort Lauderdale based artist. I’m originally from New York. I do a range of work from photography and digital to painting and mixed media. Personally I’ve always approached art in a therapeutic sense first and everything else second. Whether the medium is digital or physical art has always helped me to express feelings and emotions that words tend to fail. It’s been a beautiful learning tool to process the world around me and my experiences.
My work often surrounds the subjects of sexuality, identity, the surfacing of subconscious feelings, the human form, and anxiety. The range of my work almost comes completely from the need to release this impulsive nature I carry. I am always trying to find structure to place what I feel is a whirlwind of emotions that pass through my head everyday. Hence why I look at my work as more therapeutic, and rely on it to sustain my well being.
Painting for me has been the flip side of that experience. Where before I had subjects in front of me now I have to fathom everything from my head onto the blank canvas in front of me. It’s very much so subconscious, internal, and solitary in comparison. I approach mark making in one of two ways. I either completely cover a piece with no direction or intention until a foundation surfaces that I can then interact and develop. Or I draw out the subjects of the piece and carefully cut them from paper and collage them into mixed media. From there I create subtle layers with acrylic, pastel, collage, spray paint, graphite, and charcoal. Balancing the push and pull of the surfacing image while working through the mediums until I am at a stage that I could not have fathomed. Very similar to how Willem De Kooning approached his paintings. It’s about how much I can put into a work.
I am compelled to both abstract expressionism and surrealism though I fear the claim of stating what type of artist I am is limiting to my ever expanding discovery of self. I am a jack of many trades, but an artist at best.
The photographs I gravitate towards producing are exposures where the subject is very much so in their element. A picture of where they genuinely are at the moment. Raw and honest, whether beautiful or grotesque. Honesty is something I really strive for in photography. I don’t want to take a photograph that is staged. While I still involve creating environments for the photographs the main goal is to capture the subject as they truly are. Like a receipt of someone’s soul. Captured forever. Photography for me is also about reality and the conscious. You approach what’s in front of the lens and not a blank canvas like painting. So you have to use things that already exist to create the work.
