Title: Heliotropism Oil, Charcoal (Rust on Canvas)
While living in the Midwest I traveled on the road quite a bit. During my trips, I enjoyed what I found outside my window; barely standing structures surrounded by nothingness.
These sagging houses had a strange resemblance to the figures I draw. The way gravity had shown its mark confessed a similarity in the slouching shoulders of the elder woman I found on the street. I am interested in ideas concerning the past and present. Creating shifts between these two realities and finding the bridge to memory is what I strive to achieve in future images. I intend to connect these visual elements so that one is not faced with a one-on-one alternative, either the foreground or the background, but other means of constructing the image. When looking at this collection I see impressions of my life. My work is autobiographical yet I trust the viewer to recognize these shifts, seeing their self in relation to the image.
