This body of work is an investigation of semiotics as it relates to color psychology and organic forms. Utilizing fluids, bubbles, and spheres, metaphors emerge for life’s ephemeral nature illustrating the passage of time as well as the beauty and violence present in life, death, creation and rebirth. The manipulation of organic materials serves to demonstrate metamorphic qualities and their unique transitory natures reveal delicate rhythms that correspond to the physical and mental transformations experienced during the cycle of life. The duality of life and death, attraction and repulsion, and the referencing of the microscopic to the macrocosm within Thin Skin offers a multiplicity of meaning in the biological, psychological and universal realm. While the structure of signs presented relies on traditional symbolic interpretations, it is the amalgamation and conflation of these metaphors that provide context for the work.
