Ready to Hang
This piece is from a body of work I created as an MFA candidate investigating fear and cultural iconography.
It was exhibited at "Bilocular" a show in Cambridge Massachusetts at VanDernoot Gallery in June of 2017.
This piece is wired, varnished and ready to hang. All materials are archival, and the sides have been painted.
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.
