Artist Statement

“Disclosure/Concealment explores the visceral and analytical impact of narrative and aesthetic forms. Images are provoked by identity, role play, colloquial expression along with the aesthetic influences of popular culture and social media. Employing line and color as the primary means of mark making these concepts are created through a series of ‘staged portraits’ in which the artist, places herself and others as both ‘subject’ and ‘observer’. These photographed ‘stagings’ are reinterpreted and rendered using lineal, kinetic and idiosyncratic marks with acrylic and other mixed media on textured paper or canvas. Images range in size from 6 inches x 6 inches to 9 feet x 20 feet.”
