Ready to Hang
This piece is the first in a series of work I did while pursuing my MFA. It personifies childhood fears in a way that makes them willing scapegoats and fun things to think about in leu of actual problems. This piece is all archival and protected by varnish. It is on deep stretcher bars making framing optional rather than a necessity, and is wired and ready to hang.
Bio My mental association with something: a place, the angle of the sun in a memory, stories when there is nothing else left of their subjects, is my departure point when creating my work. I learn much about my association with the context during the process and I get a sense of resolution in this. I receive immense gratification knowing that I have animated what is lifeless into a boisterous celebration of energy and life or a hauntingly elegant study in subtlety. Dimensionally rich in layers and textures, and held together by articulate color plays, I create pieces that beg intimate investigation, and reward again and again upon repeated visitations. My work has been published in a book featuring international artists. I hold a BA in fine arts, am internationally collected, as well as in many many private collections in the United States.
