Series of Mixed Media Paintings (2013-2014)
My mixed media works are inspired by two potent, contrasting states. I sometimes feel like an immovable, solid piece of flesh. Other times I feel as though I am pure energy, and am shocked to look in the mirror and see that I am, or have, the body staring back at me. My paintings explore the transition from one state of being to the other, and are about using physical movement to reach a place of internal stillness. Very textural, and constructed with plaster gauze and molding paste, they bring to mind morphing landscapes and aging bodies.
