Abstract

I’m interested in the scar tissue, the blemishing of our perception from the ache of longing and estrangement that comes from repression and returns as enigma. I’m investigating the notion that the body itself is a puppet that succumbs to the control of outside forces, making it vulnerable to mistreatment. The paintings come from cathected suffering through reminiscences brought forth from amorous memories, resulting in new encounters that replace old associations. It is the memory, not the event, that becomes traumatic.
