Singles Faire #8 - mixed media on metro card copyright 2011

Singles Faire is a new series of work that reconstructs narratives from visual instructions of physical therapy into scenes of enticement towards the opposite sex.  The inherent ambiguity of non-verbal communication leaves these small works open to multiple interpretations, from humor to repulsion.    The paintings are created on New York and Washington, DC, metro cards, paper and wood panels using a variety of techniques including media transfer, watercolor, and drawing. 

Singles Faire is part of the 5th Annual DC SWAN (Support Women Artists Now) Day celebration of women artists. Not My Sister is comprised of a family of South Asian women from the Washington DC metro area. Their sound has been described as the Shangri-Las meet Indie pop, and as "intelligent and genetically in sync."
