Palace Quianna Shaw
I guess my idea of home is pretty fluid since I’ve moved around a lot, but I’d have to say home is where I feel solid & supported and that’s really grounded in the people I have in my life but at the same time I also think home is the space you create for yourself whether physical or mental.
What are you most passionate about?
I have a lot of interests that change over time and kind of supplement and dance around my passions- but I think I’ve always been passionate about creating and conveying really vivid experiences; I’m passionate about understanding how people interact with their environment and how people choose to take up space in the world. This kind of manifests in my love of museology/film/art etc.
Who has influenced you?
I have some amazing people in my life that influence me in different ways through their sense of creativity and direction or their approach to life. I am an observer & absorber so I am influenced by a lot of people & things I can’t articulate very well.
What do you feel in your gut drives you the most?
The need to know everything and the want to share everything I know.
I am still figuring this out, but I think art gives you the space to really grow and confront your ideas and your experiences in a positive and constructive way.
When creating, what is the message you are trying to convey?
I think the message changes but I always want the sincerity/genuineness to be conveyed
Do you ever face any difficulties when trying to create?
I usually feel lost & limited a lot when I’m trying to create, I’m too hard on myself and that’s usually a barrier to actually making progress with ideas.
What are your goals as an artist?
To celebrate and explore the facets of life that I find most interesting and through that hopefully tell my story/perspective in a way that effects someone out there.
What do you define as beautiful?
Whatever makes you open up to the world a little more / something you can’t help but immediately react to.
