An Artist's Mind

For all the explanations and Artists Statements, what really drives an artist to do what they do? How do you go from making the fascinating image below, from 2004, to cutting out words and hanging them on a wall ? Somehow there's a mechanism that prompts artists to craft an oeuvre to express themselves; to say something in particular. And then many go on to say other things in other ways.

Annie Vought has decided to write and then carefully cut out the letters and/or phrases with an exacto knife. Some works are large and continuous, others consist of seemingly random words scattered on the wall; others she frames. You can see her work by visiting her Website.
