Scratching the Surface is a new body of paper sculpture artworks referencing women's bodies by investigating boundaries and resilience with private and personal space. To "scratch the surface" means to examine a surface superficially benefiting from a small part of something much bigger. In this process, analogous to the female form, I subvert the concept of scratching the surface by revealing a bigger materiality underneath questioning, What is hidden? What is revealed? What is affected?
Series of charcoal and graphite drawings, Replicate, Burden, and Obliterate.
This series of graphite works on paper investigates a tainted inner consciousness kept within a boundary. Similar to stains, the works refer to a mark on something difficult to remove: a moral blemish or a conscience stained with guilt. The works devoid of color result in forms that blur the boundaries between the inside and outside surfaces alluding to private and public spaces.
