I wish for GlogauAir to be the opportunity for me to expand my practice as a painter in an unfamiliar environment. Having been to Berlin only once on quick trip 5 winters ago, I wanna take over the spirit of the town and share that experience with fresh faces and new minds.
I’m not opposed for it to be the chance to also diversify my work and reconnect with sculpture using the wood shop. I spent the last 5 years in the United States and I feel like this would be a great place for me to take a breath of fresh air and see where my work can go from there.
Painting reality yet leaving context behind.
Through painting Honey likes to appropriate situations and objects, to play with them, creating a collection of fragments that connect with one another but can also function on their own. She looks for things in images and photographs that are part of my life and give them the power to exist and shine as something else: paint.
She wishes to treat her subjects with intimacy, whether they are friends or objects, but without making them feel so private the viewer is unable to grasp their meaning. Most of all, she wishes to be an honest painter, able to explore her own feelings, relationships and intuitions with paint while surrounded by life in both its absurdity and preciousness.
By playing with the kind of incongruous associations that arise between images she wishes to elevate her paintings to a place between humor and wonder. Inspired by genrelike scenes, Honey’s paintings show real life people caught in particular moments, but the combination of these moments in the juxtaposed images transforms them. Creating a feeling of being out of time.
Honey’s goal is not to make a merely “critical” work, but one that embraces both a satirical observation of life in general and a poetic reflection of her own.
