These three small pieces are from a large series titled Yamuna, named for a tributary of the Ganges in north India where I have traveled with students in recent years.

Reserve: $100 (each)
tissue paper, glue stick
Recently one of my tissue paper pieces said outloud, "This is". I don't know why it spoke of itself in the demonstrative. Materials are my awkward portal to the "I Am".
The colors of "Shiner" will fade and gravity will affect it. If the paper tears on removal from the wall, I'll repair it before it comes to you with simple instructions for installation.
Melting/Mending (Versions 1, 2, & 3)
Wax on panel
These three artifacts were experiments of destroying wax pistols with domestic tools. These pistols represent violence against women that happens on a daily basis. These remnants were destroyed as an ignition for the continuing To(get)her project, where communities of self-identifying women come together to protest violence against women.

Our Last Hope: Bat Pig
18x18, matted and framed
"Our Last Hope: Bat Pig" is my representation of Batman, the wounded individual dishing out his own brand of crime-fighting justice. Batman, the iconic figure in American comic books, is refashioned to reflect the current reality of America and the diminished power of the individual with his portly figure and tiny, ineffectual hands and feet.

I imagine all people as portals. Physical structures to inner worlds, or "sky in a small cage" as Rumi once wrote. This painting came from a series of 9 I created under the constraint of two work sessions per piece. It was an exercise in process rather than product, or the interplay of discrete vs. continuous. (I seldom finish anything... or rather I see everything as part of a process. ha.)
