my work is figurative, obsessive, sometimes harsh, sometimes funny,
full of symbols and can be understood within the
context of chicago imagism.
in reference to the animal iconography, i call the the ongoing drawing
series "furry mythology". it can be broken down into three distinct phases:
spare, dense and classical.
the mutant series, on plain paper, with little spacial reference
and minimal use of color, depicts icons as girl jesus, girl buddah,
in the creator series, each work is filled to the last square inch.
active girl- creator symbols work with animals, tools and script within
tight, colorful spaces. in order to appreciate these pieces, the viewer
must get up-close and personal.
the haarige religion series
one of my current projects. here, the water- colored paper conveys
a general mood, a portrait approach is utilized. airier space
emphasizes the animal / human interaction.
at the same time, i work on the world situation
series. guardian angels and human spirits in a yet-more reduced environement of disaster
or thread are symbols of hope and re-conciliation.
