Justine Di Fiore uses the body in painting as a location for social change and greater personal awareness. She reaches back into the history of figurative representation and mark making as she cultivates a critical and sensitive engagement with the process of painting the contemporary figure. Her practice incorporates her own body’s movement and an awareness of her immediate physical relationship to the painting process through movement based experiments inside and outside of the studio. Through an embodied practice she is interested in developing rebellious approaches to contextualizing and configuring the body in space.
