COLOR ME CLEAR is a durational performance that examines the cross-cultural practice of painting the face, and blurs the distinction between painting and live art. The artist paints her face heavily with make-up and then transfers it to another surface, repeatedly. The action challenges the capability of the face as it must serve as a medium both to receive and transfer the paint.
This performance work was made possible, in part, by Franklin Furnace Archive, and, in part, by public funds from the New York City Department of Cultural Affairs in partnership with the City Council. Major support of the Franklin Furnace Fund was provided in 2010-11 by the Lambent Foundation Fund of Tides Foundation.
