Inside or Out?
Painting by Jessica Gray Schipp

Inside or out? I was continuing to work with the human form and the idea of paper dolls. Perhaps feeling like a paper doll myself, displaced in a new city, feeling alone, trapped, but sensing there was a window that would take me somewhere. I think it was about the fear of opening that window, of doing something new and unfamiliar. I had begun teaching K-4th graders to sew at school and found myself taking the technique home, using a needle and thread to stitch the words “inside or out” into my canvas. 11×14″ oil paint, paper collage, sewing on canvas Painting Oil + Mixed Media Collage 2014
