Through bodily mark-making, overlapping and layering multiple lithographs and screen prints, and the use of color, I strive to reference a sexual encounter within a figural landscape, so the figure is both the subject and the space its placed in. The improvisation and impulsiveness that guides my decision-making relies upon the decision made before it, a process that parallels the improvisation of contact that two bodies share during sex. In the rendering of these experiences, the intersection, consumption, and combining of flesh are symbolic of Eve’s fall from innocence and rise to maturation. Printing with themes of consumption, gluttony, and sin, I work to blur the lines between what is considered good and evil, referring to the cyclic nature of birth, growth, decay and death.
