Artist Statement
This series is a study and an appreciation of how we carry ourselves. We live in a rich urban mix of cultures, borrowing and riffing from each other. The clothing and body language cues of one culture mean something very different in the eyes of another. We assess posture quickly. We listen, look, find something we think we understand. These cues, as subtle and sharp as verbal accents, inform our decisions. We are fooled time and time again. Racial profiling doesn’t work. Assumptions about clothing go wrong. Still, we care how we look. We want to present ourselves in the ‘right’ way, whatever we think that is at the moment. I splash around in this human physicality, the figures morph from dumpy to cool and back. Paradoxically ephemeral and permanent, the materials shift and change with the process. Recognition, excitement, misapprehension, all of it is affected by the tools, my skill and lack of it, and chance.
