In my "Embodiment” series, I am exploring the human body’s capacity to always reside in the present while our minds may be reliving the past or imagining the future. There is energy and a sense of change in these paintings: layers, scrapes, twists and turns. Just like there is energy and change in our body’s sensations: impressions, observations, pauses. It’s an intriguing process: many steps that can be easily erased and/or recreated as I work on a non-porous paper called Yupo. Acrylic inks slide around on the surface and I use rubber brushes to create bold movements and contrasts of textures before the paint dries. The main driving forces - in search of embodied living - are my body’s messages in the particular moment.
