My practice explores the body as a site where complex battles for control take place. I use queer abstraction to reflect on experiences of my body as a receptacle, a sexual object, a host for disease, a site of pleasure, a means of expression, and a vehicle for action.
My work considers a subject that has agency in the process of identity construction. I present identity as expansive, multi-faceted, continuously shifting, and difficult to distill. I create sculptures as stand-ins for the body, and then make photographs of the sculptures with human flesh – a record of interaction between selves. This multi-layered, multi-disciplinary process investigates the separation of the self into multiple selves, alienated and integrated with one another.
