"Colossus" (artist Statement)
This series is inspired by the writing of Sylvia Plath. The characters in these paintings are not images of Plath herself. They're based on the archetype that surfaces for me in her poetry; the persona of a conflicted young woman with monolithic ruminations, trapped in simple, demure settings and the repressive social mentality of the 1950's. These paintings are about a woman, much bigger than the fatuous definitions imposed on her. She is, at once, expanding and in the process if imploding.
