My Gut Feelings series consists of drawings that represent visceral
reactions to current events. These are tonal works done in black
watercolor on paper, featuring biomorphic forms whose rhythmic
variations suggest the endless chain of consumption and digestion.
The corporeal world of these images is illuminated from unseen
sources that expose the hidden internal body as it responds
to its external environment. Artistic influences include the
anthropomorphic sculptures of surrealists Louise Bourgeois and
Dorothea Tanning that give the unconscious shape through life
forms. Also seen in some of these works is the visual language
of medical illustration, using overlaid arrows and geometric
shapes to symbolize the process of breaking apart one organism
in order to nourish the life of another.
