This series of paintings explore the ephemeral nature of human form, specifically the female body. The rough textural surface and the soft fleshy tones create a dynamic that speaks to the vulnerability of the body faced with aging and decay. Like a shedding of skin, at a certain age a woman has the opportunity to relinquish her identity. No longer a prisoner of attraction, she has the freedom to express herself on neutral ground.
These paintings intimate a certain relationship between physical and psychological space, and become a memory surface where passage of time, aging and remembering take form. Each piece suggests a singular experience from life’s endless cycles of growth and decay. These interpretations come together to form psychic and topographical worlds of time and space.
