from side to side of discomfort

May 28, 2016 to July 2, 2016



To squirm is to feel discomfort. One may squirm out of boredom, or embarrassment, but I squirm mostly out of physical and mental unrest.

This work began as a series of three-dimensional forms, then daily paintings accompanied with writing, a photograph, ending with this multi black watercolor.

A certain level of my physical and mental discomforts is represented here through these ambiguous and imperfect forms. They speak as a visual language regarding how I see, feel and break down information. This work is also an exercise in organization, and is both pleasing and consoling for me. I compartmentalize the array of stimuli that I experience into these formal compositions, individually as well as a whole.
