In Search of Charm:

We Were Once Proud Creatures

Westover Place

5075 Forest Hill Ave. Richmond VA

Reception: 5-8pm, April 13, 2019

On View: April 13-21, 2019

We Were Once Proud Creatures was the culmination of my practice throughout my senior year. I was hoping to immerse the audience into the space and make them question their own presence and gaze. The room is littered with clothes, masks, and skins. Its a closet, a gallery, a bathroom. The room has been painted white to hide its history, but the water damage is already seeping through.

What I like to call my 'skin suits'. This is a process in which wear a morph suit or other form fitting clothing, and paint it while on my body. The suits begin to hold my shape after a few layers, functioning like a skin or exoskeleton. The more I move around and use them, the more they crack and deteriorate; revealing the previous layers beneath.
