MEET THE ARTIST
(Click thumbnails above to view the paintings)
The Landscapes of Fear series continues this exploration of the creation of artistic "signs," giving physical form to raw emotion:
the escalating fear I felt at a particular time in my life when I was confronting on several levels, in both my work and my personal life,
the devastation wrought in women’s lives when they are silenced to protect patriarchy. These paintings use flat masses of bold raw color,
interrupted by highly charged icons resembling lightning bolts or sprouts, to show how terror can depopulate our worlds and
obliterate the contexts they strike, eliminating all sense of nuance, intricacy, and subtlety.
