Highlighting encaustic’s ability to create depth, even when painted opaquely, “UNBOUND” and “INSIDE OUT” are figurative paintings from the The Shape of Things Series, conveying individuality as simple form, pondering the value we place on our external, public display of self.

I made these paintings as part of an exhibition titled “The Clothes We Wear” which sought to bring attention to the impact and resulting inequities of our culture’s see now, buy now, discard now approach to contemporary fashion.

My intent was to create artwork that, in a kind and gentle way, would facilitate consideration and discussion of the true costs of the nearly 40 year old Fast Fashion industry, encouraging viewers to seek alternative options such as mending and repurposing their clothing, rather than throwing away. Less than 10% of clothing donations result in a resold item; the majority end up in land fills, either in our country or in third world countries, disrupting their culture and environment.
