Maria Britton
New York, NY
Neighborhood: Bushwick

Media:Painting;


ARTIST STATEMENT: From conception to death, the surface of a bed is a place where one both experiences and escapes reality, a physical connection between dreaming and waking life. In my work I seek out homespun innovations in painting techniques that play up the materiality of the sheets on which I paint. Using washes and streaks of acrylic, I work intuitively, compelled to conceal and reveal the dated floral patterns that I find simultaneously comforting and repulsive, to transform the homely, predictable patterns into wrinkled innovations.
