Press Statement
"Lisa and Carrie inspired me with Chef Shack's public display of rustic materials such as corrugated steel and found wood. Myself being a collector of natural oddities, plus our shared belief in female empowerment, has made for an uniquely opportune collaboration.
For the painting I pulled images directly from their online presence. The final concept consists of a quasi contra witch hunt, where a pig's head is roasting over a fire while prominent, feminine hands are being warmed."

The title refers to the universal unsettling realization that no matter who you are, what you own, or where you hide, someday you will be confronted with own mortality. This is the pain of logic.

For The Inheritance, I combined vintage and metallic pigments in order to create a subtle undulation of color and pigment saturation. This effect varies under different lighting and is evident when the painting is viewed in-person. Contact me for more information.

"Saint Agatha" is an intersection of exploration of identity & self portraiture. Raised in a strict Catholic household I was confronted with impossible female role models and in return rejected not only impossible virtues of virginity and motherhood (preferably coetaneousnessly) but also femininity in general.

At the same time I have an inherent attraction to Catholic tradition of portraying human beings who became sanctified by their suffering. Saint Agatha is most often portrayed with her severed breasts on a platter, sometimes with the instrument of which they were removed. As a devotional image, it seems to have fallen out of favor despite a renewed interest in regard to Agatha becoming the patron saint of breast cancer survivors.

In folklore female saints are largely denied of any human sexuality yet the artists who made images of these saints oftentimes put special emphasis on their beauty. I felt the Saint Agatha iconography to be especially intriguing as she seems to be portrayed as vulnerable and confrontational at the same time. As a self portrait it both embraces & rejects the Catholic culture I grew up with.
