Plastiline Artworks & Clay Paintings
This series of works play with the discovery and abstraction of the figure, using the texturally soft and informal medium of plastiline clay. We depict our cartoon heroes, pop culture icons, mass media, and memes that affect us daily. The purpose is to expand our emotional consciousness and return us to relational aesthetics, connecting us to ourselves and each other. We reach into our psyche and play with those memories that shape who we are. As emotional objects, these new sculptures allow us to reimagine our childhood mythology and the cultural archetypes that have given shape to the language of pop culture. The series offers a reflection of our world in its beauty as well as in its ugly reality.
