Flesh Found in Various Forms
The Flesh is Alike
These works, completed in 2013 and 2014, all explore various ways of representing the human body with particular emphasis on the skin and its symbolic metaphors for the conditions of moral and mental states. The prints are autobiographical, the sculptures become insectival, and the textiles create layers of skin and flesh that compare the human to itself as well as to commonly consumer livestock such as bovine, swine, and poultry.
This series of paintings, collages, and fabric works is spread over many years and is slowly building up. Originating with comparison of human flesh to the flesh we consume, the works have spread into topics ranging from sex, insecurities, and self-representation. For the time being, each painting is an individual work which contributes something distinct to this loosely defined body.
