Open Art Calls Accepted Artists
New York, New York USA
What began as a “self portrait” assignment has transformed into a meditative series on the female form. Through these pieces, I have been able to explore the controversial and complicated theme of one’s body and one’s gaze upon it while respecting the “truth” of my own. After two significant life events, these “truths” can be hard to bear, but through these works, I have found peace.
As I continue to explore the importance placed on one’s physical appearance and my relationship with mine, I have become defensive. I have concluded that my body is not for sale, and I reject the idea that anyone else’s is.
I received my B.A. in Fine Arts from George Washington University in Washington, D.C. I am inspired by Yves Klein, Robert Motherwell, Joan Mitchell, Alberto Giacommeti and Willem de Kooning. I live in New York, New York.
