Lot Essay


I decided to make the images inside these painted bodies be images of what the spirit of the painting itself would look like... I always equated the experience of puberty as everyone's collective memory of heightened vulnerability...and I was hoping to equate that collective memory of fragility with my own and the painting's feelings of being vulnerable to the viewer.
