Paraphrasing Myself

This project, whose title comes from Noah Baumbach's film Kicking and Screaming, includes two series of mixed media works on paper where the imagery has been derived directly from finished paintings from the body of work collectively titled outre-mère.

While the paintings in outre-mère aimed to explore the conceptual implications of the tension between representation and surface abstraction as it relates to memory and photography, in Paraphrasing Myself, I became interested in conducting a more formal investigation aimed at testing the limits of representational abstraction using decorative techniques.
