Exhibit titled Di-Visions at the Hugo House Gallery, June 2003
Di-Visions Exhibit Statement:
The series of paintings I’ve made titled “mitrals” came out of a short story I wrote a few summers ago. The theme concerns the anxiety of representation versus dream states. During that time I became interested in looking at medical diagrams of the heart and found myself pouring over old health book illustrations. Using the media of painting and drawing to explore in color and line was originally conveyed in words became an interesting challenge and one I hope to explore more in the future.
[Here is the short story Arrhythmia that inspired the work].
