Tiffany Besonen-Statement

( bio / statement / work )

As a mixed-media artist, I use natural and recycled materials to create narratives about family, biology, aging and identity. For seven years, I have been working with pear forms and images. My recent work is a series of metaphors for “the pear” as the mother, child, womb, and home – the empty space around them as fluid, time, or movement. Currently I am working on Project 39: 39 paintings, 39 sculptures, 39 photos, a short film, and blog that documents the process by the time I turn 39. Project 39 asks questions about ideas of “home” and the roles of excess and greed in our daily lives. (
