merged     
1989—1991


Q: Am I my art? Am I distinguishable from you?




D: Merge

a. combine or cause to combine to form a single entity.
b. blend or cause to blend gradually into something else so as to become indistinguishable from it.




W: Fear of losing self inside a relationship, inside the artwork. The concept of merging using the body of a man and a woman forming one unit. As metaphor for creative process and process of falling in love—where the artist merges with her work becoming indistinguishable from the final piece.

A question about the artist’s relationship to her art, like the artist in relationship to her lover—does the process of her coming together, create   something that is beyond her individual self, does she become lost in that unit, does she disappear?
