Artist Statement

“Human positions cannot be understood to follow from the nature of men or women for as Beauvoir established no such nature exists” Judith Butler in Gender Trouble. As I explore queerness connections to landscapes, the portals, caves, and bodily holes interchangeably represent connection to the outside world which penetrates the bodies. Contour drawings and paint allow blur between separate entities which are bodies and landscape. Painted glass and wood cut in the shape of contour drawings hang from the ceiling casting shadow. The glass grounds of the paintings lend a skin-like quality to the paint enhancing the bodily effect of the landscape. While some landscape figures painted on glass or wood, I paint on traditional linen canvas. Painted frames double as portals and signs with ideographic markings.
