Painting

Waning

Artist Statement

My work focuses on the personal experience of femininity as a watchful (sometimes violent) presence. Often, the presence takes the form of a masculine shadow, a familial ghost, or versions of myself and other women. Various themes and personal symbologies float through all of my work; such as waxing and waning moons representative of the body in changing forms. My ultimate hope for my practice is to evoke memory and emotion, and for painting to act as a catalyst for love and in-depth thinking.

Reaching Out

"Reaching Out" is one of a series of six about bees that Natalie painted in Spring 2018. Three of the paintings focused on students' personal connections with bees, and the other three are about the bees connection with various different flowers.
