Are We Laughing Yet?

These pieces evolve over time. I paint on polyester film, cut out shapes, and then re-arrange them. The final interaction with the “objects” shape, is spontaneous and collaborative. Working this way, gives me the chance to be responsive to the random things that happen, to tap into my internal rhythms and way of being.

There’s a weight in the slog to keeping afloat at times. I structure my world around a system of patterns and habits to create a psychological ecosystem that allows me to transcend my insecurities, and doubts.
So how does one stay afloat? For me, it’s spending time in nature marveling at the wonder. It’s talking and walking with my husband and dogs.
Art making is where I AM exactly in the moment- my mental location. The paintings are my conscious effort to place myself in blissful distraction. Balance. I am a participant in the collaboration with the material and my atmosphere is airy within dense and transparent layers, focusing on interactions with friends and family.
