Small Attempts to Turn Nothingness Into Expanse

Artwork Tags:

'I Feel a Certain Way Towards My Sadness' is part of a body of work surrounding my body in relation to its environment. During the pandemic, I felt alone yet comforted by my own presence. My daily life consisted of mundane tasks which I attempted to embrace by exploring the delicacy and intimacy that lies in the moments shared with myself, alone in my apartment. This exploration led to capturing private, intimate moments of ordinary life in domestic and interior environments while exploring themes of identity, femininity, vulnerability, and beauty and letting the male gaze and historical aspects of the female nude subject support without taking over the work. I form ideas around what it means to romanticize the unseen through a personal, individual and generational experience as a female presenting person. I question what it means to find shelter and protect the body — spiritually and physically — and to expose the comfort barrier and shell of a private, domestic space. I allow mark making and the language of oil painting to slowly turn into an intimate way of storytelling.

STATEMENT

Through drawing and painting, the content of my work is focused on capturing private, intimate moments of ordinary life in domestic and interior environments while exploring themes of identity, femininity, vulnerability, and beauty. I have an ongoing body of work surrounding my body in relation to its environment. Protection and conservation go hand in hand, and I attempt to embrace the delicacy and intimacy of moments shared with myself, alone in my apartment. I am creating this body of work through a feminine, vulnerable lens, letting the male gaze and historical aspects of the female nude subject support without taking over the work. I form ideas around what it means to romanticize the unseen through a personal, individual and generational experience as a female presenting person. I question what it means to find shelter and protect the body — spiritually and physically — and to expose the comfort barrier and shell of a private, domestic space.
