In "Transvisceral Borders", I use the human skin as a metaphorical magnet, to gather opposing elements from within the human psyche. The skin's ambiguous role as "link" and "barrier" to the external world, universally draws physical reaction and mental reflection. "Transvisceral Borders" probes the shadows between fascination and abhorence, between instinct and ethics. Like Entrapment I and II (shown in the video), this project continues to explore the duality in human nature.

I am currently working on a series of paintings that explores the construction of identity in the context of youth culture, motherhood and marginalization. The core of the work is my own experience as the lesbian mother of teenagers. The series goes on to examine related concerns--sickness and aging among them--that are raised as I am forced to accept my age in a culture that calls women old by the time they're 30.

I would like to propose a show of paintings and text to be presented at the grunt gallery. The title of the show would be called The Hardy Boys Revisited. The premise of the work would be that the Hardy Boys would be freed from the narrative time warp in which they are trapped perpetually as seventeen and eighteen year olds. By using fictitious book covers and titles the works chronicle their progression into adulthood and bring Frank and Joe Hardy into the 90's. For the purposes of this show they will begin aging from the late 60's, making them in 1995 in their mid 40's
