Statement

Using language informed by abstract art, my work presents a psychosexual narrative and explores a visual representation of queer identity. The message of the work is universal; intimacy is relatable cross gender and sexual orientations. Erotic artwork isn’t solely about sex but raw human experience. Although beauty and sexual allure are represented in the work, there is also a visualization of shame, guilt, repression, and sacrifice. My current body of work represents an analysis of the complex relationship between sexuality and religion with a particular interest in the subjective nature of good and evil. Themes of repression, expressive ritual, and symbolic gesture materialize through fabric sculptures and photographic collages.
