DISCO BALLS |   2021

watercolor, acryla- gouache, and ink on paper

My disco ball paintings similarly respond to the isolation of the pandemic, as my Companions series. These images are all about the organization—or rather disorganization—of the colored light refracting from the many disco balls I have hanging in my living room / home studio. Through these images, the stale space of the studio is reflected and refreshed with ever-changing variations. In this way, my aesthetic concerns merge with my emotional ones: using the playful relationship of color, light, and texture to fill and invigorate the social and physical spaces that the pandemic has denied us.
