Artist Interview: Stacy Deslatte
What are your earliest memories related to art?
My earliest memories of experiencing or seeing art was the stain glassed windows and the 60’s era banners in the rebuilt Cathedral where I attended Mass with my family. I also witnessed my mother creating some of those banners for the church and other fabric creations including most of my and my sisters’s clothing. And it was the sixties and the seventies so that was art! But to me art was all around when I was young. I saw artistic expression in the curves of the rows of the corn fields and the undulations of the seed heads of the wheat fields. I saw art in the way trees grew and ants traveled and clouds bubbled. To me art was beauty and beauty was nature. Or maybe i mean art was an attempt to express beauty as well as nature did.
