third life series

Covering up, hiding, disguising. My skin, hair, and body. Using color, shape, and form to distract what is underneath. I mirror this in the simple painted flowers, in different shades of pastel and vibrant color, highlighted in bright-colored puff paint, but covered in cut-out shapes of painted sateen and embroidery thread. Each painting is a self-portrait. Ruminating thoughts, obsessive thinking. Repetitive patterns, vivid colors.
