These are two of the drawings and the foam figures for ‘Images’, a performance I created with Linden Little. ‘Images’ is based on the Nina Simone song of the same name. The piece explores themes of oppression and transcendence. We wash images pulled from the lyrics of the song and hang these images from strings that drip color onto us. The bright colors originally applied to the images mixes to dishwater brown in the washtub, contrasting with the vibrancy of the dripping pigments that hit us.
