Artist's Description

Oil paint has been combined with hair & rose petals to examine the manner inwhich lived experiences imprints upon the surfaces of the body. Rose petals are symbolic of refinement grace and beauty- here they pull between blood clots and cherry blossoms. Wet, scarlet soaked hair perhaps from a reproductive incident, perhaps just the patterns it left upon nerve and muscle pathways. These works play with social codes to convey the messes of sex, blood and birth that produce maternal bodies.
