Electro-Pop Lady Grid I

Hey folks,

Behold, I have just finished "Electro-Pop Lady Grid I"!  This piece was created by registering gel transfers of photocopied ink drawings onto hand-painted acrylic gradients, and then collaging them onto book board substrates.  Presented face-up on a pedestal, it blends illusory and sculptural spaces within a non-quadrilateral format, activating painting off-the-wall.  As the viewer investigates the piece's various perspectives, their body is denied entry by its small scale, forcing them to reckon with the anamorphic contradictions created by the painting's multi-planar surfaces.  "Electro-Pop Lady Grid" pulses with an electric cyber-queer energy, interposing spectrums between rigid binaries and disrupting expectations by bending perceptions of hierarchy.  Like a grand mountain, the undermost layer may become the summit, just as the trompe l'oeil recedes into the foreground.

"Circuit Topology Poem"

I am in planar camo
as I weave between muscular tree roots
bursting from uneven concrete tiles,
up to a kaleidoscopic canopy

Knots of interwoven branches obscure the sun,
casting gothic rays down onto my
animal face

Instinct drives me
to an ancient geometric grotto,
located somewhere beyond the deep murmurs
of these uncharted tropics...

The series...
