Grande Femme

Artwork Tags:

Grande Femme is the first in a series of paintings created during my time as an artist in residence at the TEAD One Memorial residency from July - September, 2023. These pieces focused on different aspects of the Divine Feminine. As the start of my residency, I knew I wanted to create an oversized, unabashedly PINK painting. Growing up, all things pink and girly were to be "suppressed" if we wanted to reach our true "girl boss" potential. This piece is an erotic, feminist artwork about embracing yourself - your looks, your sexuality, your physical body, your emotional self - wholly and proudly. Every dimple, wrinkle, pimple, hair. Imagine a world where we loved ourselves as we are and demanded what we want and need without second guessing ourselves or feeling self-conscious - that would be truly revolutionary.

My artwork explores the dissolution of material and figurative imagery, depicting the abstract essence and energy of life. I draw inspiration from my personal psychology. My mental health has given my life very difficult and also very beautiful moments. These are translated in my work through color, form as well as the physicality of paint. The repetitious layering of, taking away, and re-application of color underneath automatic scrawling, scratching and mark-making express my inner psyche – the way I think about myself and the world around me; This can be rough and harsh, and sometimes it is gentle and loving.
