Intimate Space

Just finished a piece for an invitational show entitled Rituals.

An exchange between friends. A handshake. A kiss before bedtime. The artist at work. A sun salutation. The wave before boarding the school bus. A song, a word, a meditation. A habit, a custom. The traditional toast at a gathering. A rite of passage. The sacred moments of the ordinary.

It's been an interesting challenge. The format is very different than what most people work in: vertical 24" x 60".

My piece, Intimate Space, depicts the daily custom of brushing our teeth. Here's my artist statement:

Nothing is more intimate than our toothbrush. Each day, upon its start and end, we brush our teeth.
