Good Girl: Sweaty Palms and the Smile (2018)

In the "Good Girl" Series, I work in combinations of paintings and small felted sculptures to illustrate the complicated emotions that arise from childhood memories and childlike impulses. My work revolves around a central figure, Good Girl. She is the reflection of me as an artist and manifests my attempt to hold on to my inner child, which is triggered by my desire to relieve her from dark and sad emotions that she felt in her childhood. Good Girl is also a representation of a typical young girl who feels anxious about growing up. Noticeably infantile and feline in her characteristics and subtle in her expressions, Good Girl demands sensitive attention from her audience. My dream journal entries, anecdotes, and memories from childhood serve as important sources for creating images of Good Girl.
