2020

$1,850

About

The initial drawings began as many drafts on paper that I photographed on my iPad, worked on with a painting app, printed out, drew over again and finally cut out and glued onto wood as the first of many layers of acrylic paint, water soluble crayons and pencils, gold and silver leaf, fabric and lace, glitter and jewelry that make up the work. Each painting goes through many stages, and I find myself going back and forth between working digitally and detailed handwork with the elements. While working on them, I thought a lot about depictions of Eve, icons and altars. I thought about hiding and revealing, protecting and challenging. Some began with a specific protection, spell or hope in mind; protection from a violent man, help in getting or not getting pregnant, relief from sickness. Some revealed their meaning to me slowly, some are still a mystery. The work of making them was a salve in a hard but galvanizing time. I hope that looking at them offers up some of that.
