Exploring relationships through human form, body language, and connection.
(I use words as subject matter more often than a medium but for the purpose of having a statement and communication as people and Google do, here are a few words. )
Connection is my most recent work. Started in 2016, it’s a series of works exploring human connection through body language, touch, and gesture; communicating and connecting without words using improv lead-follow social dance.
Everything in this world relates in one way or another.
Across all my projects and mediums, I’m fascinated with relationship and connection. Usually it’s some language-less intuition.
Figures on Clothes was my first series of paintings starting c. 2003. To me, they’re about the relationship between clothing and nudity using the human form. I painted nude female figures directly onto the surface of stretched and prepared clothing as I would on primed canvas.
With art my intention is to evoke something, maybe feelings of connection in that another human gets excited about the same ideas.
