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. White Columns does not curate exhibitions from this Registry.
I draw lines, lines on paper, lines in space, lines in movement. My drawings are minimalist and conceptual. They each represent single subjects: human figures or common objects on a plain background. They are visual commentaries on contemporary life as a mother and artist.
I explore ingenious ways of using elements, ranging from art materials to wires and light and develop alternative ways of drawing. With each medium, I create a series of still or animated images. They are presented as video projections, photographs or prints. Drawing to me is a state of mind rather than a medium. It is a synthesis process to transform my thoughts into visuals.
My process is about exploring how the medium and support interact together: where and how the ink, light, wire sits on the surface of the support but also how the surface enhances the graphic quality of the drawing; folds, textures, shadows or even the absence of the paper become inseparable from the drawing.
Medium can be anything I come across in my daily life: a pile of salt or snow acts as white paper to support large scale drawings; wires make line drawings and so do their shadows, printed folded plastic films appear to be objects floating on the print; water on the paper transforms itself into an image when ink is dropped into it; found objects assembled together become surreal characters.
My artistic goal is to challenge the use of everyday material and transform them into poetic visual interpretations.
