Now let us crawl under the canopy of current trees and tell stories. Let us inhabit the underworld. Let us take possession of our secret territory… this is our universe. – Virginia Woolf, The Waves

My paintings are personal re-takes of the figure in landscape. Using found photos as references, I work without sketches, allowing forms and content to emerge, gradually, as I paint. In this, I am interested in charged point of interactions between figures and/or the landscape, as well, in the ways meaning shifts, opens or reconfigures, as a found photo becomes a painting. Subsequently, in collecting, and transforming representations of women’s bodies, my intention is to speak to a history that was not meant for me – to personalize figures and re-work images so that they speak more to experience than a mastering gaze.
