Works on Paper

Hybrida Series | 2007-Present

The series was started and exhibited in Paris, then shown St. Louis and New York in 2008. The body of work continues to expand as an ongoing project in my studio. The works on paper are made by pouring plaster directly onto the surface of paper while it lays flat on a table. The resulting low-relief images possess a white on white aesthetic. As the title Hybrida implies, disparate characteristics of architecture and the human body combine with one another in the works. Architectural elements, such as walls or corners, blend with qualities of flesh similar to skin and bone to create enigmatic, abstract shapes. The edges and angles of each shape establish perspectives similar to those used in architectural drawings (top-view, end-view, oblique-view). Molded contours imply forces of gravity and support that press on the forms, which in turn, sag and give way like flesh.
