“Tar Snake” is a series of paintings on paper, mylar, and linen inspired by the tar ribbons that fill the cracks in the road. You hardly ever see them created by a public works department, but they are always being done and are everywhere. The use of mylar, a new material in my work, becomes a metaphor for the smooth texture in film and photography, and suggests overlapping gestures to retain the feeling of a double exposure. Interpretations of its multiple meanings is left to the viewer. Tar Snake Studio InstallationTar Snake IVTar Snake 231Tar Snake 232Tar snake 224ICA Boston Lobby Proposal
