The Bend Series began last summer in my sketch book. Still adjusting to my new surroundings and complicated feelings with repatriating to the US, I was struggling to find my voice in the studio. My usual color bombs started taking the back seat as minimal line studies began filling the pages. My first few paintings stalled as I wasn't sure where I wanted to go with them. By the end of the year, stacks of explorations started piling up with strong, imperfect, bending lines staring back at me. I saw a sense of grace and peace in them. The lines took on personality and relationship to one another. I realized then the Bend Series explores the universal theme of strength and adjustment in times of change and adversity.
