Evoke. I know it's not your typical word but that's what we do at OLW. We challenge you and cause you to think about a word to evoke an emotion or feeling. Evoke can be defined in many ways, like to call up or produce (memories, feelings). When you visit your parents or grandparents homes, the sights, sounds, & smells can evoke memories from childhood. Food & music can evoke emotion too. A song will bring back the time & place i heard it. Evoke can also mean to produce or suggest through artistry and imagination a vivid impression of reality. I really want to evoke emotions in through my art, to pour myself into it & dig deep to give them a voice. I use color and texture to hopefully express those feelings that evoke & unlock emotions and experiences in others.
So what does the word EVOKE in you?
