Art Description

Painting: Acrylic, Paper, Collage on Canvas.

My work investigates how concepts of self are affected by crisis and memories of specific events. Obstacles become launching points. Recycling perceived memories through the mature perspective of the present assist in the development of allostasis, or the balancing and stabilizing of basic physiological life functions during changing environmental and developmental contexts. My goal is to gain an understanding of the self and to use art as a means for communicating with levels of my unconscious in an intense experiment of self-discovery.

As a teacher, I examine my role in this game with this painting. I recognize the same pressures placed on teachers as the scores are used to measure my success as well. Starting with old tests showing failing grades as still life material, the acrylic paintings are pushed past the literal form into a space of structural balance. Acceptance of these beautiful failures offer some peace.
