In a search for understanding my inclination towards certain objects and surfaces, I experimented with hog gut to not only transform the material, but use it as a means of expressing my idea of beauty. This gut is atypical painting medium, and it has an allure of curious repulsion. It is lain over thick paint with pleasing colors which allows the two unlike things to interact.
The gut is packed and preserved in salt, which is still present on the surface of the piece. These form crystalline patterns, which also adds to the material’s strange, yet attractive qualities when re-appropriated through painting. The transparent material is no longer viewed as a part of a once-living creature; it becomes a new object.
