5 Days III
Gouache and pastel on paper | 2019
Working in a style that alternates between figurative and abstract, the Brooklyn-based artist is less concerned with precise anatomy and more concerned with the poetry of the body in her mixed media paintings and works on paper. Her latest collection in particular — organic fluid, and simplified-yet-suggestive mixed media pieces made with oil, gouache, pastel, and more — is more personal than ever, using elements of self-portraiture and autobiographical narratives as a jumping off point to express more universal truths.

“By letting go of anatomical rules, the works become more like poetic spaces. I’ve been cultivating pictorial simplifications of body parts and using them to complicate notions of a “universal” experience of living in a body.”
