Artist Statement:

I incorporate the form of the nude female mannequin in my paintings to serve as an iconic symbol. These hybrid forms reveal a parallelism with society’s cultural ideals. Their identical, clone-like appearance suggests a culture that persuades its members to conform. The compositions express a type of confinement: as a specimen in attempts to preserve youthfulness, undergoing invasive surgery to be physically ideal or manipulating genes at the source of creation – to reach cultural ideals.

On exhibit at the Mellwood Art Center in the Pigment Gallery, hosted by K.A.S. Gallery.
