This painting consists of layers of sliced white sheets revealing a dimensional frame on the right side
This piece is best if all side cans be viewed. The back has bulbous protrusions from the sheets pushing through the frame
In "Pink with Wolf" I explored pouring paint over crumpled bed sheets primed with rabbit skin glue

Artist's Statement

When I create paintings, three dimensionality always creeps in: in the form of collage, cuts in the surface or they become freestanding works. Awkward hand-built structures press against and through the skin of my paintings. Wooden frames erupt and take over whole rooms, leaving fabric clinging in memory of painting. I use bedsheets, referencing home, intimacy, dreams and drama: their crumpling acting as an impasto swoosh, or creating chiaroscuro. Patterns from the sheets offer a harder edge line in contrast with my organic brush marks. The patterns have a nostalgic quality and act as signifiers of moments in one's history. In my paintings and installations I create immersive spaces, where it is an event to look, and also a site of events that have taken place. I am curious about combinations of works in relation to each other as they create a constellation of movement among them.
