In nature and in humanity, it is the eyes that move us, spark our imaginations, plumb the depths of our empathy, and forge a connection between worlds. So it is with Betsy Youngquist’s three dimensional mixed media work.
Gazing at Betsy Youngquist’s bead, glass, and stone encrusted creations is like unfolding a treasure map with your eyes. The journey begins with the eyes, beckoning the viewer to look more closely and to touch, and then gives rise to an instinct to integrate and orient what we know with what we feel. Soon enough, we are exploring the topography of Betsy’s wonderful, magical, spiritual world.
