I am exploring what it means to be a woman in today”s society. While my solitary female figures are strong and confident in their sexuality, these paintings also offer a glimpse into the confusion and doubt felt by women in their moments alone. In this way, my paintings serve as psychological self-portraits. Each one is a reflection of feelings and experiences that I myself have gone through, and each is a projection of the progression of my moods and emotions while painting them. Through this projection and reflection of myself in my paintings, each work has a strong link with self-portraiture.
I am also interested in infusing these paintings with a true emphasis on sex and glamour inspired by the cult of beauty in contemporary mass media, and exploring how this world affects my central female figures. The duality of these three dimensional human forms and their flat intricately patterned surroundings is a juxtaposition that I enjoy emphasizing in my paintings. By highlighting the dualities of confident but confused women and flat but somewhat three-dimensional compositions, I strive to present a personal yet universal depiction of the world of women.
