Artist Statement
Alyssa Pomfrey's work investigates self-perception through ideas of weight (body weight and the weight of painting), with particular reference to her white suburban female identity. Pomfrey is particularly interested in how color and mark making can influence these relationships. What does it mean to manipulate color and surfaces both in art and nature, and how does that affect our minds and bodies? Ultimately, within her work she aims to explore the question, "What do we carry as individuals, and what does it look like?"
