My process makes use of contrasting ideas. I have utilized a mineral fiber paste that allows the surface to build up and create a slight relief; the resulting texture is similar to a wall or slab, much like a fresco’s plaster surface. And like plaster, the fiber paste offers absorbent qualities for wet and dry media. I deviate from this traditional base in the use of airbrushed compositions and opaque acrylic elements.
As with previous bodies of work, my recent exploration focuses on gender-based power dynamics and sexuality but also examines the human potential for emotion, creation, destruction, violence, pain, and desire.
