B.A. Thesis Work
Untitled Series, 2010
Pieces in this work began as simple drawings: delicate skeletons of the subjects they inherit from memories. These initial sketches are then frustrated and complicated: parts smeared away, fragments of peripheral memories added, all quite reactive. The forms move backward and forward in space while abstract shapes obscure imagery pulled from nostalgia and found ephemera.
By nesting fragile moments in these suspended compositions, the memory is preserved in a transient realm of half-life half-death. What emerge are mutations, born and becoming, that take on their own sense of dimension, past, and memory.
