In my work I explore aesthetics, tactility and sensoriality as ways of speaking;
I like to look at constructed binaries; valid / invalidated, micro / macro, masculine / feminine,
human / nonhuman ...and harbour desires for translations and transubstantiations of being.
I like to observe the social skins and support structures that fragile bodies build and need.
We Other and are Othered; who defines what is accepted as sentience?
I have a conflicted fascination with how oppression or pressure shape interiority as well as forms, but also a desire to transmute their mundane pains.
This increasingly immerses me in questions of being, value structures and mutability- its promise, potential and frequent necessity to survival.
I find myself looking toward everything that grows, mutates, evolves, transforms.
