My Bruise Looked Like Jesus
Mixed Media




In my day-to-day life there are times when my awareness is forced into the present, away from memories of the past and plans for the future. Sometimes it is because everything is beautiful and seems to be exactly in the right place. Other times it is because I am uncomfortable or in physical pain. In my newest works I am focusing on the feelings of self-awareness created by not having any clothes on. Although vastly different all of these experiences are firmly rooted in the present. Sadly, I find it quite difficult to live in the moment. A compulsion to collect things makes it even harder. I hoard all kinds of things because of their connection to the past. Fabric, photographs, and stuff I find on the side of the street seem too precious to throw away. Other people offer me their collections and I take them because I fear waste. I use these collections to document my experiences of living in the moment. Sheets, scarves, and old clothing are my canvases. I obsessively sew my collections onto my paintings to augment the images. Painting is an excuse to collect as well as a way to purge.
