Painting: Acrylic, Wood on Wood.
I mainly paint ribbons that are often, but not always, knotted in some way. What I find most interesting about this format is what the paintings can suggest about the ways we navigate our own entanglements. For instance, one painting might look dense and complex, with an overwhelming number of twists and turns. But if you spend some time tracing a piece of it, you soon find a path through the chaos. Sometimes the ribbons appear to be knotted but in fact aren’t. Sometimes the knotted ribbons have fixed boundaries, and other times they leave the edges of the canvas and go on indefinitely. Sometimes they’re bold and confrontational, and other times they’re just passing through.
This piece is part of my Flat Series, which collapses the ribbons into just their silhouettes, giving the impression of a shadow, or something that was once there and now is gone.
