impact #2, Sunflower seeds, Gesso, Canvas, 2012
I seek to understand life events through my art, and in this work in particular I am recalling and expressing one of perhaps life's greatest creative act, that of generating another human being with no barriers nor boundaries. I explore ideas on the themes of painting, the feminine body and homeland. I question and explore the ripple effect of identity in regard to culture and background. The folding and tearing, revealing and hiding is of basic essence of this work.
