My work considers the complexities of visual spatiality and materiality; my paintings oscillate between the physical and material space of the world and the pictorial and more subtly material 'space' of the painted surface.
Drywall, cabbage juice and coconut oil, rotting roses and cedar planks â€”my artwork distills a lived
experience into material reality. These materials take the shape of sculptural networks that serve
as biographical biomes.
Born in a country of over fifty years in an internecine war, I destroy and construct my own
canvases by hand stitching. I then re-skin the works with layers of metallic paints. Stitching, like
love making, is a long process.
I am a mixed media artist working to heighten cultural issues: landscape evolution, human
preconceptions, use of natural resources, similarities and differences between societies, cultures,
Engineered ergonomic and kinetic sculptures that express a continuum of the body in movement
in space and time based on coordination and balance activated by the artist or professional
dancers in public performances or in photos and videos.
