My new paintings focus on the representation of the body as a site of subtle slippage, disruption and/or dislocation, an intended slippage between observation and illusion. I explore intersections of where the objective and subjective; truth and fiction; rational and emotive meet. I am interested in exploring representations of the body as a site of struggle. This work explores the dissonance between the body, representation and the mediated image.
