Painting, Sculpture, Fibers
My paintings use abstracted neuronic forms as metaphors for human interactions engaging in intimate acts. The forms invite and attract the viewer via large scale, bright and vibrant colors, and a playful and humorous tone. It is not until the second act of viewing that the connection is made between the subject matter and what the image is actually depicting. My work aims to evoke a dichotomy of attraction and discomfort for the viewer. It aims to please and overwhelm the viewer and the viewer’s body. The forms create their own universe and composition, similar to cells in the body, where they are free to flow and move, while having their own place and purpose within the painting.
