Artist's Statement

My work acts as an immersion into the human condition, inviting people into the life of my central character, Eve. Rendering movements ranging from banal to absurd (cooking, dancing, listening to music, eating flowers), I use the faceless Eve concealed in layers of grey clothing and padding, to construct a narrative of fragments and repetition in dilated time. A close emulation of dozens of simple, borrowed actions, I deconstruct these familiar gestures to build my own fiction — fixed in the pattern of a wallpaper, the loop of an animated gif, or the edges of drawings — revealing both the foolishness and wonder of our routines.
As a protagonist, Eve is both sinister and playful, suspended between being a child and a play toy; an attempt to return to the lightness and magic of childhood that has since been lost to time. It's a story told through syncopated movements. (Jodi Waynberg)
