STATEMENT OF WORK
My practice is centered in painting, incorporating sewing and velvet with more conventional materials of the medium. I begin by adding and removing color from canvas or velvet, working with traditional brushes but also directly with my hands, weed sprayers, or household mops. I slice and rejoin the paintings sewing fringe into the seams—introducing a curious “mark” with movement and texture. I let the paintings develop freely; most are largely abstract with one or more articulated thumbnails—paintings within paintings. I record the working process on the surface, from brush wiping to intentional gestures, combining the unpredictability of abstract processes with the intimate nuances of picture-making.
My work rethinks classical mythology with a contemporary perspective and feminist methodology. I don’t work towards a literal re-presentation of characters and their respective mythologies, but rather one mysterious, psychological, and symbolic; One that celebrates the Dionysian qualities, typically mistrusted and maligned, ascribed to women throughout history and that still permeate current ideology.
