InHabitations is an exploration of a body in its insistent fluidity and mutation. My body sometimes appears to be at times monumental, at times limp or frail, with textures from silk to parchment to sand, female and male, in shapes that flip between awkward and graceful. The gaze slips from disorientation and estrangement into sensuous immersion. Colors, textures, shapes and compositions lap at the eye like a flirty tide whose moon is our quest to, with or despite pain and fears, inhabit, embody, and embrace a physical self.

The online gallery contains a lot of nudity (While I post the work unapologetically, I honor the many differences regarding triggers, concerns and comforts of others).  The gallery is on my Artbeta site —   InHabitations Project Portfolio
