Statement

As a student of Art History, I am intrigued by works from bygone eras, especially those that depict past idealistic beauty standards. Despite the fact that originally these statues were  colorfully painted, I look at them as blank canvases. Their current state allows me to impart my spontaneously chosen color palette on them, whether through recreating their likeness in paint, or through the process of printmaking. Choosing an image of a statue and recreating the figure allows me to develop work that represents my own ideas of beauty through the use of bright colors and patterns.
