Swampland Bacchanal (2017 - 2018)
Landscape and figure relationship-- the hot and sticky swampland is a space maximized with bright day-glow colors, patterns, and plants. When figures find themselves occupied by such a space-- one both familiar and estranged-- the excess of the landscape flows into excess of action.
Bacchus presents himself subtly through the body of the landscape. Figures overindulge themselves and explore regional folklore and personal mythology. In a space so dense, the viewer's catch glimpses of public but private moments-- moments that examine abuse and passion, femininity, sexuality, violence, impulse, indulgence, and the ambiguity of any given situation. Motives uncertain, right and wrongs are displaced and challenged.
