Adventures in My Mother's Lipstick

Flipping through an art catalog looking for fresh ideas, I stumbled upon oil pigment sticks.  The description shared that this recently developed tool applies like lipstick.  Immediately intrigued, I knew I found my next adventure.

This show explores boundaries - parental, physical, emotional, energetic and spiritual.  The loose and free application of this crayon-like instrument led me to a younger time of smearing lipstick way beyond my lip line.  This sense of exuberance and limitlessness sparked an examination of adult-acquired and self-imposed boundaries.
