Sarah Squirm (2023)
10" x 10"
Oil on Canvas

I like bodies! I love and hate my body. It’s a meat casing, a puppet. The figures I paint are comic and grotesque character stand-ins for me. They express ways my body can transform in perception and reality.

My painting process is exploratory. I’m calculating how I should present myself to the world. Sometimes I’m beautiful but often I am disgusting. My giant oozing pores and random hairs inspire abject fasciation. Anxiety fuels my attention to glamorous and disgusting details. Obsession feeds my love of form. - Gregory Jacobsen
