“The shapes and colors in my current work draw inspiration from the familiar objects that I see day to day, everyday, while sheltering in place in my home during the pandemic. The shade of a purple bruise on my toddler’s knee, the ecru tone when the sunlight hits my dining room wall in the morning, the shape of a relaxed newborn fist when he’s finished nursing. Years from now, these collages will serve as an abstract journal to look back on this uncertain time in our shared history, a reminder that we had a warm and safe home in which to hide away.”
A series of paintings created with watercolor, acrylic, and ink exploring the feeling of weightlessness when submerged in water.
Water acts as a metaphor for a powerful force surrounding the subject and lifting their burdens from them.
