Claybords and Canvas

The images in my paintings, my drawings in Photoshop and my photos refer to the human body—specifically, the female body, that first landscape to greet us when we come into the world.   In ways both subtle and brazen I distort the representation of the female body, combining abstract and figurative elements.   The human body, female and/or male, is a constantly-renewing source of imagery for me.   I use only my own body and/or face in the photographs.

The themes in my work revolve around difficult issues:   disease, death, destruction—all with a leavening of humor.   I combine representation with abstraction.   I begin each painting by drawing in ink and drawing, as well, on a “cast of characters” that appear every so often.   As I draw, I add paint, erase, emphasize.   Formal qualities are important, as is symbolism.    There is a strong narrative element in my work, both within each piece and from work to work.   I tend to exhibit this body of work in a jazzy grid formation or in a band of work around the room.
