The White Columns Curated Artist Registry is an online catalog of digital images documenting the work of artists who are not affiliated with a commercial gallery in New York City. Each submission is reviewed by our curatorial staff; in order to be considered for the registry, one must submit work digitally via this website.
My work culls from conceptualism, feminism, from outsider art and from literary history. I am interested in creating an experience of color, texture, patterning and emotionality. My latest works are imagined portraits of women artists and writers working in Paris in the early 20th C. Along with hand-drawing and painting, and cut paper on paper, I use ethnic patterns sourced from the internet, cut, rearranged and traced onto the paper. These intricate colored patterns help to express the biography of the subject. Beginning with a literary investigation, my mise-en scène is a particular relationship, idea or moment in the life of the artist/ subject. The project aims to reveal the intriguing lives and significant works of women who helped shape avant-garde culture between the wars in Europe. Recent pieces have used French wallpaper, Moroccan designs, and most recently Elizabethan era pastorals and Ukrainian patterns.
