I'm excited to share the opening of my solo show, NIGHT FORTRESS, at Kirk Hopper Fine Art in Dallas TX. If you are in Dallas, come out to the show opening Saturday, August 25th!
My newest series, Night Fortress, depict haunted-house looking fortresses and female warriors that draw on medieval art, folk stories and quilting traditions. I’m interested in how fear is intimately linked with our sense of ‘home,' safety and origin stories. The paintings depict chained citadels, a cross between castles, crime scenes and haunted houses. These structures are story-book like and act as metaphors for fear and our often haunted past.
I’m interested in storytelling and draw on a variety of folk stories, symbols and biblical illusions including the Tower of Babel, Judith and Holofernes, Bluebeard, and tarot. In particular, the show explores traditions forged by women and their influence on communal histories especially in the form of quilting. As quilts took time to make, were often created in social groups, and were passed down to family members both as objects and techniques, they have a particular resonance with the establishment of home and tradition. Many of the paintings in this series include quilt-like borders to represent homemaking, healing, and protection.

The work in BLOOD BANNER combines images of demons and warriors with both tragic and victorious figures. Inspired by the myth of the labyrinth, medieval iconography, babushkas, breakfast foods, and the story of Judith and Holofernes- the work in this series explores the beasts that are external as well as the ones that reside within.
