Abstract:
Backyard Bedsides is a series of paintings that explore the loss of innocence associated with childhood abuse and premature sexual discovery. The work focuses on the psychological and emotional repercussions of such events on prepubescent behavior and adolescent development. The images reference composite photographs, scientific studies, statistics, testimonials, and personal experience. The paintings also examine how color, composition, and context can be used to express feelings of isolation, confusion, and conflict. In this way, the paintings depict not realistic space, but psychological space. They provide a glimpse into the mind of the abused.
