Standing Woman 7
Drawing is the foundation of my work and my approach. I like its dynamic sensibility, its ability to capture not only the anatomy of the subject but also the body language which reveals the unique essence of the subject. It is also about the dilemmas and solutions of space with its physical and psychological implications, and the possibilities to frame, detain, and project a subject.
Standing Woman 7 is a painting from my Woman Series that addresses self-consciousness and, in this particular piece, memory. We move, multiple times in every moment, within the framework of what we have done, what we are doing, and what we are going to do. In all these states we carry our emotions and our history: what we feel about our actions, how we hope to feel in the future.
While women share with men some of the universal aspects of self-awareness – the singularity of existence as well as the camaraderie, our collective and personal anxieties and affiliations – a woman’s relationship to scrutiny, both emotional and physical, are different. The women in my Woman Series of paintings are exposed to the viewer in these unique aspects.
