About

"Soft" (2018), acrylic on canvas painting of hand and arm with striped shirt. Figurative interior with floral tapestry patterns in bold colors including bright yellow, blue, red, rust, orange, copper, turquoise, green, mauve, violet, lavender, peach, black and white. Hand-signed by artist Framing available upon request Certificate of authenticity available upon request Thoughts from the artist: "My work explores the relationships I have with myself and my surroundings, including the people in my life and my physical surroundings. I examine the way that the spaces we live in can represent and interact with us as much as we do with them. I use patterns and vibrant colors to communicate personality and give the viewer an intimate look into my personal spaces, real and imagined. People often use the items and patterns that they wear and surround themselves with as a form of self-expression, so the collection of things becomes uniquely specific to the individual. Lately I have been thinking a lot about comfort and safe spaces in my work. For much of the last year many of us have spent more time than ever in our own bedrooms and domestic spaces. This forced proximity places another level of importance on our personal spaces and they become a necessary extension of ourselves. We require a level of care for our spaces so they can care for us. Within these spaces, I use the body as a landscape with organic shapes and curves and unnatural vibrant colors. I paint the figures from unusual perspectives, sometimes including the perspective of the subject so the viewers can step into the work as if they are looking down at their own body. This unusual way of viewing the body of another person evokes a sense of distortion of the body that expresses the disconnect that I often feel in my own body with the way women's bodies are viewed by others."
