DISCUSSION

In my recent series of paintings beings fabric is the object utilized to shape the subject. In this performative work my body is the object. Premixed colored ink and water are poured though the canopy, dripping on me, outlining my shape. Water evaporates, pigment stains, and chromatography results.

I sleep in my painting, my stillness creating it.

Water, fabric and maternal love are present at the beginning of all human life. These three elements are our first experiences of life.

MISSION STATEMENT

“TACTICAL STREAM artists in action” - To unite & inspire people, honor women & the earth, mobilize the masses & attract global media.”

WATER WORLD

Violence & Freedom are similar, which is America built on and which does it promise & deliver? And If both, in what measure? Does violence fuel our idea of freedom? Competition & battle are human nature, it begins as inocent play & is subverted into the acceptance of violent oppression of people & the planet. “Inciting joy”, you can not be arrested for that. Joy & rebellion are contagious, bringing us to the awakening that not war, not love, but play between people grants us freedom, an intrinsic human trait that we must never forget.
