Ungrounded: Glyph 4, 2020




Oil and oil media on linen on panel. Dimensions include frame. The sides of the painted panel have florescent Acryla gouache applied to them, such that they reflect off of the inside of the white frame, creating the illusion of an chromatic aura around the piece. In this series, Grounded / Ungrounded, the collages came first. They depict the front walkway of my home, a threshold I cross daily, spliced with other photographed elements from my studio or daily life, including walks in my neighborhood—all shot on my phone. The collages inspire the paintings in the same series. I see them all, the collages and paintings, as one extended conversation about movement among modes of being—between my pre-kid self and my current and future state as a mother, between being a roamer and a homebody, between being settled and unsettled and back again. For me, they explore how far we can travel while remaining localized. For me, they reframe the concept of the Landscape, and my place within it.
