Singles Faire is a series of work that reconstructs narratives from visual diagrammatic instructions of physical therapy into scenes of enticement towards the opposite sex. The works explore physical destruction and reconstruction of the body within physical, mental, and cultural environments. For this series I have worked on the exercises I had to go through in my own physical therapy and used them as a sociological macro lens to focus on the larger cultural context of what regaining physical optimization may lead to. The inherent ambiguity of non-verbal communication leaves these small works open to multiple interpretations, from humor to repulsion.
The paintings are created on New York and Washington, D.C., metro cards, used as support and metaphor for ideas of pass and journey, but also on paper and wood panels using a variety of techniques including media transfer, watercolor, and drawing.
