Statement - Mixed Media 2019
With a focus on women, my works of mixed media, embrace the concepts of rebirth, rejuvenation, and fertility. Surfaces of carved out walls and spheres transform themselves into fields and holes, while they weave in and out of solid colors and hewn textures.
The spheres and gestural forms which inhabit the mixed media paintings, can be visualized as once having been bodies which have since transcended the structure of enforced form. Tight rotations, patterns of shapes, and spirals are realized through paint, fabric, twine, hemp, fabric and yarn, materials stereotypically associated with women. Clusters of circles and ovals become caverns and eggs, embracing negative space, while becoming a moment of primordial rebirth, bodies which have since transcended the structure of enforced form.
