Ideal Proportions: Squeeze - A Winning Hand
2013
Dry pigment, gesso, polymer and oil paint on portrait linen
183 x 213 cm

Her canvases here use text, colour and form to convey data sets pertaining to both body builders; Jay ‘Cuts’, Phil ‘The Gift’ and Frank ‘The Chemist’, and domestic terrorists in the US; Burt, Dibee, and Kerkow. There is an inherent frustration in her representation of these individuals and our ability to ‘read’ them through the medium of her paintings.
