Under Your Skin is a collection of pictures torn from the pages of human anatomy, mystical beliefs, and college medical books that I have collected over the past 30 years. I was equally inspired by my personal collection of artifacts from the streets of New York, Seattle, Guam and Richmond, VA.
Much like the layers of the epidermis there is a silk screening process of layering images on top of each other to produce these individual pieces. I used the layered colors and macabre symbolism to express the sensual pleasures and medical discoveries of the unearthly world. Within this realm the work you see varies from appropriation, estranged and representational.
As a painter - printmaker I find inspiration in the hidden layers and the dark side of people, places and unseen things. It is what lies under each of our skins: the feelings of the unexpressed heart and the internal pull between dark and light.
