(1986-1987) "Coatings" were an extension of the "Scapes" portfolios, except I was interested in the effect of adding incongruous layers of materials to force different emotional reactions. Several were accomplished by using a trapeze which I had installed from the studio ceiling in order to create different muscular interpretation. The psychology changes drastically when adding these elements to the human figure as in the “gauze” series where the model freely reacts and creates movement and emotion.
