Art Description

Painting: Oil on Other.

self-recognition
My paintings stem from the close, intimate observation of human skin, that place where personal history is printed and narrated in each spot, each crease, and each wrinkle. We are what is visible in our skin; that makes us readable and therefore vulnerable. My painting wants to explore that vulnerability, that risk we encounter when under the gaze of our selves. It also wants to create untold stories, to capture past experiences and future hopes or longings in the sheer physicality of the present moment. I use animal skin as my canvas, because I want to build the character out of both, the painting and the skin, to merge together as one to tell one whole story. The skin itself, has its marks and scars, so does the character in the painting. They are put together to complement each other and build a story in a not obvious way of communication.
This artwork is oil on animal skin, it has scars and stitches, textures and holes, most of them come within the skin. They are part of the composition.
