These drawings evoke human characteristics, personalities and emotion without relying on figurative representations of the body. Through sagging forms, folds of skin and swells of flesh, they speak to the absurd physicality of human experience. Fragments of flesh, hair and textile are paired with cartoonish spills and floating webs—macabre images that are as strange as they are amusing. Taken as a whole, these drawings are abstract compositions rendered in bright colors and layers of pattern, yet they reveal a fascination with the psychological grit of sex and domestic life.
