Extended Words

Quest is DC based artist, with influences ranging from the energy of cityscapes, music and people she encounters everyday, to the Burning Man festival, indigenous culture and the divine feminine. Her studio practice involves alchemy, taking raw feelings, vibrations and moments in our lives to transmute and reincarnate them with resin, paint, collage, sculpture and over 30 other mediums she works in.  Quest’s artwork is a mixed media tapestry of flowing pigment and vibrant color, which tells a story that demands to be seen, changing with every person who sees her work.

About the Artist:

Quest Skinner is always striving to find new ways to make her artwork break away the emotional blockade between artists and buyers. As mixed-media artist, teacher, community activist currently residing in Washington, D.C., she is influenced by the energy of cityscapes, music and the personalities she encounters everyday. Then in her studio she brings them into her world; a world that takes raw feelings, vibrations and various moments in our lives then captures them with flowing pigments. Quest’s artwork tells a story that changes with every person who sees her work.

Working within 30+ different traditional and non traditional mediums, her fluid and always interchanging style of work keeps patrons coming back to explore the world through Quest’s eyes.
