STATEMENT OF WORK

This work originates from my interest in the trends and uses of patterns and color around us. I am also inspired by everyday personal expressions found in handwriting and doodles. I use fabric paint to make repetitive gestures and marks on canvas that mimic the sensibility of printed fabric. Sometimes recognizable shapes such as shoes, googly-eyes, clouds and hands.

In many pieces, I cut the canvas and sew it back together creating another subtle composition. The seams also function to interrupt emerging patterns, create moments of pause and/or add an additional geometric composition. Sometimes the painted gestures reconnect through the seam and in other places the gestures jog left or right. I am interested in the way the seams can create a tension against the silly comical gestures of the paintings.
