traceloops // A few weeks back, I met Matthius Brown at the Jane Hotel. We got to talking about each of our crafts- mine being photography, and his being incredible GIF art. We stayed in touch and decided to collaborate on an image. Here is the result- my photograph with his animation. Follow traceloops to see his incredible work.
My work explores the contradictions between the impulse to destroy and the compulsion to mend. I juxtapose rapid acts of destruction, such as spilling and cutting, with painstaking, restorative labor. Embroideries are hand-stitched over stains and rips, contrasting the accidental with the meticulous, constructing narrative from randomness and mistake. The initial marks are found on linens or are created by cutting and staining canvas. The work scrambles expressions of aggression with masochistic patience and sublimation and plays with the feminine through the graphic form of the “stain” and the adding of peek-a-boo, lace inlays to repair cut holes that expose the hidden space behind the canvas. Shadows on the wall add a sculptural dimension and some pieces are hung off the wall to reveal the secret and unintended marks of the verso. Thanks Rhumboogie
