Meredith Adamisin :: Exquisite Transfer
My work explores the boundary of psychological and physical within the human body. Using mark, I explore essential aspects of the body: weight, posture, gravity, volume, mass and force. The figures are framed like portraits within the picture plane and hung like them as well. They are life size and isolated. and are simultaneously immediate and distant, whole and disconnected. Miniature marks accumulate over time to map the form. Ranging from enlarged pore-like, to obscure alien-like, to skin and scale-like, to ultra-plush fur; the marks and forms extend beyond physical experience because they do not make sense. The invasive mark signifies internal and external forces that assert pressure and control over each figure- confronting it. In addition to simple and assertive space the combination of familiar and unfamiliar forms create a psycho-physical paradox.
