"Longing for Transcendence" A visual survey through imaginary Poetry : : 3 channel video projection : : Laser-cut acrylic suspended art objects : : patterns on paper : : Audio score by Val Kuznetsov of www.chicagovoicelab.com . My Monsters - inhabit the liminal world of primordial desire. Mothers in production, beautiful others, queer and playful embryos; primordially ancient and omnipotent cyborgs. They contaminate each other with longings and diseases. Their bodies are altered, transforming, rebellious and excessive. I am interested in creating iconographic taxonomies that transcend the human condition of “new normal” into the visually exquisite grotesque constructions. Nothing is abnormal: extruded lesions, dangerous flowers of cancerous in-growings, mothered, aged, diseased bodies, they are all bodies loving and loved. My world is the utopian, seductive and irresistible.
