CONTRAFLOW is a body of simple and minimalistic work that is succinct and uncomplicated in attempt to bring a sense of balance to a visually overstimulated world.

The main focus is on composition and each color has been specifically researched and chosen for its scientific “happiness” value.

Precise embroidery stitching combined with dreamy painting seeks to elevate traditional “women’s work” from a humble craft to the level of an appreciated art form.

Show is located in the Deco Lounge.

ARTIST STATEMENT
My work has always been informed by activism, feminism, and political statements. On a formal level I work in the mediums of traditional women’s crafts in attempt to elevate these humble materials to the level of an appreciated form of art. Through knitting and embroidery my goal is to bring these concepts full circle in order to celebrate the full and rich history of woman-hood.

After many years of creating broad and vibrant statements I’ve found the need to rest my mind in the midst of a tumultuous world. My recent work is simple and minimalistic, succinct and uncomplicated, but precisely executed to stand out against imagery that’s more frantic. Visually it says ‘less is more’ in both composition and color. Pieces are often quiet and restrained in attempt to bring balance to a visually overstimulated world where a calm approach can be a welcome contrast.

Inspired by the concept of happiness as radical activism, I’ve taken my work in a direction that celebrates goodness, intention, and interconnectedness. My statements are still broad and vibrant, but now represented in a way that allows myself, and the viewer, to recharge energy, appreciate simple beauty, and continue pushing forward for goodness and progressive change in a refreshed and balanced mindset.
