My work is rooted in cultural and personal perceptions of identity, sexuality and gender. Specifically, I’m interested in how established binaries might be questioned and challenged through visual languages. For example, how might heteronormative constructs breakdown or shift through a changing practice of norms such as religion, tradition, ritual or the telling of history. I often employ “nature” as a layer to equalize the relationship between viewer and the work—I want the work to remain abstracted to create an open-ended conversation yet find a familiarity with the viewer. Formally, the works embody a binary relationship between materials such as flatness to dimension, geometric to fluidity or shiny to dull, all the while attempting to breakdown, resurface, cover-up or push/pull.
