I just set up an Instagram account, a step towards being more public with my artwork. I will focus on my current paintings on paper–the pairs. More than any other work of mine, I follow them; working on one and then the other, moving back and forth until the “conversation” between the two is beautiful and viscerally moves me. The “voice” of each pair is based on their relationship to the other.
These pairs affirm my sense that everything is talking to everything else, that we are always in a dynamic exchange with another, inherently changing both entities. These pairs are about belonging. Belonging to each other, speaking to each other, changing each other.
These two were my first pair; the moment I finished them, I felt they were the work I have been moving towards for most of my life.
