After a year of planning and several weeks as a self-initiated artist-in-residence, I’m excited to open a show of my work in a pop-up space I’m also running for this project. It’s been a huge endeavor and includes work in a new creative direction. Hope to see you there!
The Eve of… is a new installation of sculptures and video examining uncertain psychological states. Inspired by the decisive moment after setbacks and before actions, the project explores the disassembled self on the eve of re-organization.
Mirrors, colored vinyl, Mylar, plastic bags, and asphalt-based paint are used to create props and scenes of light and darkness. Through such works, viewers may encounter their own reflections or shadows, or the incongruity of ineffable emotions and physical embodiment.
