The kind of creativity that remains as indelible and insoluble as dreams
Remake/r begins with a kernel - an image turned into a feeling which, in turn, remains permanently frozen into a single moment of rejoicing. Here is the artist operating in her own space and time, expressing herself to herself alone.
Inspired by Hans Arp, one of the most versatile minds of the 20th century, Joan Miro's adaptation of biomorphic forms, Wassily Kandinsky's joyful automatism, and Henry Matisse's approach to collage as a painting, this series of photographed collages explores the potential for unique compositional relationships that result from the unfussy yet harmonious arrangement of organic forms and non-representational elements in order to expand on the state of a woman living in a world that makes her feel like not enough - or too much -at all times, a world that keeps her in the in-between of who she is and who she thinks she needs to be.
The resulting visual compositions remain as personal, indelible, and insoluble as dreams, which may be the very thing that makes these photographs so strangely familiar and yet so hard to decipher.
