Broken: Having been broken, despairing, gaps in continuity, a rough surface….
Hands: End part of a person’s arm beyond the wrist, including the palm, fingers,
and thumb; power to direct; active role in achieving or influencing; workmanship…
Change from outside in: bodies as endlessly perfectible, endlessly
im-perfectible, and the rituals we need to survive such aspirations.
WHEN DOORS ARE LEFT OPEN (WDALO)
An adult nursery rhyme: the story of a little girl
and a boyish creature who enter a world of exoticism
Waiting, in all its pathos and beauty. Inspired by
Artemisia Gentileschi’s Susanna and the Elders.
Created with wood found waiting on the streets of London.
A simple love of nakedness – voyeurism turned
inwards, a sense of distance applied to that from
which there is no distance.
Domesticity. Strings attached. Report from
a life once-tied down. Project developed and
exhibited as a Rocky Mountain Women’s Institute Fellow.
Things with Feathers: Crows. Ravens. Jays. Sparrows.
swallows. Pigeons. The more common, the more cunning,
the more interesting. So many wings in infinite rhythms.
A little totemic theatricality that soaked through
the skin – a forgetting of real and not. A dream world.
Whimsy and play, sumptuousness and incongruity,
revenge upon the icons of art and culture.
