Finding an artist like Theresa Pfarr is what motivates me to do this Artist of the Day category. I find her work intense and amazing.
Incidentally and anxiously, I discover and draw from the meanderings of the female image in our culture, as it addresses me.
I treat the cultural, commercial and personal as one in my work, through a process of collecting, collaging and manipulating images into my paintings.
Elements coexist in the paintings to describe the anxiety associated with inhabiting a medial self-consciousness.
Edges disintegrate, limbs distort, paint melts into skin, and glances confront in discord.
Lovely painterliness – can’t beat it somehow!
They are like half present, half there…almost wounded like too
Yeah, I think that is a large part of the idea behind her work.
