In Bedtime Stories, the works use a blanket as substrate and support and a range of non-traditional materials for mark-making. Each element is critical in conveying meaning to the overall narrative. I begin with finding the correct blanket: similar to ones of my childhood, neither new nor contemporary, used. The materials I use to paint with are in conversation with the weight and texture of the blanket, giving the appearance of viscosity to evoke bodily secretions. I use the toy stuffed bunny as a motif throughout, a replication of the same one I’ve had since birth, to stand in as double, distancing myself from and making a place for the viewer, of the experience of child abuse. While my initial intention to make this work stemmed from my desire for understanding, the outpouring of fellow survivors’ stories upon seeing my pieces has been a very rewarding part of my practice.
