Lined Ladies Series
This work is about truth, honesty and aging. It is about looking and finding the beauty that is in all of life.
From earliest times art has influenced people’s attitudes and helped to change their perceptions. It is my hope to make art that enables people to re-think what they see in a wrinkled face or aged body or, specifically, in an old woman.
I print my life-sized, nude figures on various Japanese papers that are reminiscent of aging skin. They hang by threads from the ceiling and gently turn toward and away from each other as the air in the room circulates. Ideally the viewer should be able to walk among these figures – and, in a sense, become one of them, to see the patterns, and to see the beauty.
