Artist Statement
I am interested in how objects and the experience of those objects can exist in the peripheries of language, where neither language nor representational methods are all-encompassing. However, by unpacking and utilizing semiotics – linguistic, visual, and otherwise – we can illuminate difficult conversations, by which I mean intuitive, visceral, and innate dialogues. I want to uncover these residual feelings/dialogues so that they might become digestible. I am interested in juxtaposing language and object so that understanding comes before articulation. Lately, I have been focusing on ideas around the body, transgressive bodies, phantom limb syndrome, loss and ideas of ‘the self.' More specifically, exploring how the body is a site and vessel for our ideas of ‘self’ and how trauma, shock, or loss can affect our internalized image of ourselves. Additionally, I am curious about the power that the physical manifestations of our bodies have over self-image, transgressive acts, gender identity and embodiment of the abject.
