Before a Thought, During a Thought, After a Thought

Before a Thought, During a Thought, After a Thought, Arlette Stella Poland, 2020, acrylic on canvas, 24 x 36 in. / 60.96 x 91.44 cm.

"Before a Thought, During a Thought, After a Thought" is a 24 x 36-inch acrylic canvas that illustrates the progression and compartmentalization of cognition. Poland uses a dynamic blend of colors and forms to symbolize the chaotic arrival of sounds and information, the organizing during the process of thinking, and the subsequent 'boxing' of these thoughts. The artwork challenges us to consider how we structure our internal dialogues and the 'boxes' we create to understand our world.

What You See is What You...?

What You See is What You...?, Arlette Stella Poland, 2021, acrylic on canvas, 36 x 24 in. / 91.44 x 60.96 cm.

In "What You See is What You...?" Poland explores perception through a 36 x 24-inch acrylic canvas. This piece prompts a meditative look at reality and self-reflection, questioning whether we view life through a mirror, a window, or in its pure form. The artwork, with its fragmented and layered imagery, is an invitation to examine the kindest point of view for oneself and others, blurring the lines between observer and observed.
