Following the death of a loved one, I began thinking increasingly about representing the body in a spiritual sense. What does it mean when a person has “left,” yet his or her physical body remains? Each painting appears to be composed of the body and soul as separate entities, though the boundaries between each are enmeshed through the painting process in a way that depicts their dependence on one another. Throughout the series, the boundary between life and death is investigated, and the definition of living is called into question.
