Ready to Hang
I am drawn toward work with soft pastels because their quality is so ephemeral and delicate.
This particular piece was created out of my sentiments of division and boundaries; I am divided from those inside yo whom I look onto so longingly. Divided by culture, by language, by my own personal obsession over that which I lack. The evolving echoes of facial contours extend out beyond the forefront subject in attempts to communicate, relate, and participate. These attempts are always just beyond my abilities and I liken such unfulfilled need to a dramatized limbo with a subject always in the dark, yet captivated by light, and the apparent lightness of being which is attributed always to the "other"
To Be Continued....
A Detroit based artist who has divided myself up into three slices: Art, Foreign Language, and Poetics. Thank you for visiting my portfolio.
