Giving Voice to Inner Life: The Art of Bobbi Van, 2013
"Van’s art makes you think of the output of another American artist – or poet rather – Sylvia Plath, who transformed intense emotion into poetry that another Nobel laureate, Seamus Heaney, characterized with the words, “irresistible given-ness.” Van’s paintings, like Path’s poems, strike you with their “astonished being”, and the imprint of the force they pass through as they come into existence."

"Bobbi strives to capture a space of harmony in her artwork through establishing a balance in light, color and motion, portraying both strengths and vulnerabilities. She crafted The Visit and The Dance on a clear vinyl surface to create a sense of transparency and to explore these dualities."

"The sculpture Twisted Lies#4 was pulled together to contain the elements in my studio that represented “I am here”. This desire to explore other cultures and live a free transparent life is made manifest in my use of choosing a malleable soft vinyl as my canvas."
