Abstract (English)

"I am interested in how the discourse about, and practise of, sexuality and touch relate to hierarchy, dominion and subordination. I am currently exploring the correlation of Eros and conquest to European and Native American contact in my new series of paintings, The Prayer Language.

Suspended between these layers are organic forms, at times resembling the figure or organs of the body. [...]" -- p. [1].
