mixed media and resin on panel
8″ x 10″
Dance and movement inspire my artistic practice. I focus on dualities, using contrast as a means of creating volume, and line as a contrast to planes of painted space. There is a tension between the positive and negative areas of the drawings. I want the viewer to feel the physical presence of the subject and the potential of movement outside of the two-dimensional surface; to create a dialogue between what it is I am drawing and the techniques used in the process of making the work.
