The painting presents itself in physical space as something to be dealt with directly instead of remotely—it demands engagement. The distinctions between commodity, machine, object and body have become confused; the work calls for the viewer to reexamine her relationship to her surroundings. By reforming disparate material elements into paintings that seem to have their own pulse, the viewer comes to terms with the power of material and its affect on the human psyche.
