complete beginner too

what remains? the  Remainder
feminine and masculine coexisting in one body
through the human figure- through this human figure
clean and dirty
grief and joy coexisting
birth and death

Soap pieces translated into video
Dust pieces translated into sound
Ani dialogue continuing through mixed media

Collapse of perceived time
Beginning every time- all time, no end

with Ani

It's ironic that it is Ani who is teaching me how to carve smiles.
Hers and Vaclav Havel's are the first positive expression I have carved.
Thank you and missing you, love!

For Anitra

complete beginner

two aspects of the same thing in the same space. 

human figure 

perceived dualities of:
above and the below
clean and dirty
conscious and unconscious
back and front
feminine and masculine
grief, anger, and stillness, as they relates to domesticity and Feminism.

beaded Morse–coded poems
Clean city streets
Air Dirty Laundry
life-long love of painting


discarded paper and found images
collapse of perceived time
hand held mirrors cast in porcelain to reflect the space around them
necklaces created using Morse code are beaded translations of texts that convert sound into form.
Figure paintings
Why is it agonizingly difficult for me to articulate what I do through the written word?
I feel like a complete beginner. Every. Time.
