Words such as top-heavy, inflated, porous, weighty, droopy inform this work. The visual vocabulary of “disarranging”, “deranging”, “discomposing” is the language through which the work unfolds.  To this end, I chose soft fabrics, wigs, yellow ducks, towels, and mesh bags. I emphasize  their tactile malleability to evoke relationships to body parts, hair, sensuality.

The  series was completed during my residency at EastSide International, Los Angeles.
