ARTIST STATEMENT: My paintings and works on paper engage figuration, the media, and personal and cultural notions about self and identity to investigate attraction, cognition, and the paradox of the hard and the soft. Sleep (2010) features monochromatic figures, evoking notions of intuition and transformation. The series investigates a number of interwoven themes: androgyny as an emblem of psychological and biological changeability/uncertainty; the solitary figure as a traveler through both hard (outside) and soft (inner) space; weight/solidity and weightlessness/transparency and their associations with responsibility and freedom; and a fluidity of structure and confusion of figure/ground that evokes painterly tropes and functions as the basis of perceptual disorientation and reintegration.
