Though this be madness, yet there is method in't.
If I have intuited and come away with a single major, actionable theme in my current body of work, it's a hybrid one: the chimera -- a fantasy fusion of both man and beast.
Literally speaking, the Chimera stems from Ancient Greece, where it was known as a female creature that was a mixture of lion, snake and goat. Some say she mated with her brother and spawned the Sphinx -- there are other versions of the story too numerous to tell here. What excites me creatively and fuels this new body of my work to date, however, isn't grounding in such historical antecedents; it's the fact that today, chimeras are a reality.
What's more is the fact that, on a personal level, I've realized a few things about myself, as artist, while pursuing this chimeric theme: All along, I have been a hybrid, a fusion of forms and influences, a performer-craftswoman who puts her body and psyche on the line no matter what project she takes on.
