Attack of the Internal Destructor by Tricia Burmeister
Medium: Acrylic and collage on canvas
Size: 16 in x 20 in
Artist statement: My work visualizes internal landscapes as external environments. By grafting together collage and painting, I construct coherent yet inconsistent topographies that represent the discontinuous realities we construct for and about ourselves. “Attack of the Internal Destructor” illustrates how shame, fear, and ego can threaten our ability to empathize, connect with other humans, and be in solidarity with each other.
