From a fluid liminal dream space painted figures emerge and recede. Mushrooms, vegetal forms, yonic and bodily shapes, amoebic and cosmic patterns overflow, collide, and dance with bits of perceived sensations. Patterns flow seamlessly into each other as the movement of the piece evolves. I paint with my body, my whole form, wearing marks and splatters like mud, ritualistic decorations.
Emphasizing textural accretions and spontaneous gestures rendered in rich hues, the work draws from diverse sources: magical realist literature, myth, astronomy, natural history museum collections, the dizzying complexity of microscopic life forms, Kristevan abjection, the specific sensoria of a time and place. I am interested in metamorphoses: witnessing, exploring, chasing, conveying, and enacting transformations through the movements of color and texture on canvas.
I paint towards haptic sublimity and rhythmic delight, zooming in and out between the smallest and largest perspectives. Cosmic and microscopic, the work is sensuous, intimate, and full of secrets, as I traverse internal landscapes to render a mirage-like moment of expressionist satisfaction.
