I’m interested in how a line or mark relates back to the body as an index of experiences: ruptures, sensations, needs and desires. Embodiment is always an “in-relation-to” phenomenon; we are forever entangled in our environment. Mark-making is personal, formal, and conceptual— lines functioning as possibilities for connection, as potential ways of being, as a mapping of the correspondences between private emotion and political consciousness. Edges, boundaries, outlines, areas and shapes are never static. Forms shift, demanding multiple reads, as if the act of looking is also a list of potentialities. By expanding and multiplying modes of recognition (seeing, marking, touching, listening), we make way for new kinds of understanding, bodies and relationships. With this there is a belief that alternative forms of support can open up, like learning how to see negative space for the first time ever. Figure is to ground as body is not only to site, but also to support.
