My work is an exercise in capturing the essence of a soul. I paint subject matter in a state of being unmasked emotionally. I look for unguarded moments where the true nature of a person is visible. Emotional in nature, I paint these real moments on large scale canvases. As I am painting I transfer my own emotional experience into the process while also being affected by my perception of the subject. This ranges from my imagination of a stranger to real interpersonal relationships with close family members. Each step and layer of paint mirrors a life experience. Not all layers of paint are visible, yet they affect the outcome of the whole just as the subconscious mind affects our outer lives. My goal through painting is to bring the subconscious into awareness.
Lace Chamber is a project conceived by composer/producer Logan A. Smalley and violist/performance artist Christina Silvius. The duo incorporates elements of free improv, noise music, theatrical performance, and audience participation to create unique soundscapes that correspond with the physical environment of their performances.
Christina and Logan have been performing as Lace Chamber since March 2018 and have performed in venues ranging from DIY house shows to art galleries and burlesque theaters. They were invited to perform at the Oh My Ears New Music Festival in Phoenix, Arizona in January 2019 and the Kansas City Contemporary Music Festival in May 2019.
