Artist Statement

This is Zmijewski’s second linked bench system for Art on the Atlanta BeltLine, creating surface designs with both colors influenced by folk art tradition and inspiration from abstract automatic image making. Most of the images and forms have a connection to the natural world, Zmijewski’s primary source of information.
