CHROMATIC

I’m an artist whose interest in shapes manifests itself through a variety of media. I seek to bring forward the contradictions between the expectations of society and an individual’s sense of self. My focus is on women and the stark standards that have been established for a woman’s appearance. After finding a study made by the U.S. government in 1940 to standardize the woman body, I created a geometrical shape using the measurements generated by the study and presented it in drawings and three-dimensional figures.

The exploration of shape goes deeper through my work with the study of body language. The pose is shapes, and shape is both a noun and a verb-- to understand the human behavior is imperative to see it as a whole. Body language gives a visual form to identity and enhances the visual aesthetics of communication. You are what you create, as much as you are what you perform. My goal is to create images that echo the past, confront the present, and embrace the future.
