Within my art practice, creating and exploring self-thru art making has been my expression since I was a child. It was a way for me to make sense of the world that I have never really felt included.
Today, I have walked many miles to be the person I am. I am proud of my histories as a woman, man, transgender including the person I stand before you today – a queer masc. presenting person.
Art making gives my diverse lived experiences a voice to disrupt the viewers understanding of sexuality and gender by subverting and challenging thru using my own body/ies, histories & experiences. I don’t try to resolve any questions evoked, instead I spark a conversation between the viewer and I.
What informs my work outside my own lived experiences are various theories in sex, sexuality and gender stemming from popular culture and sociology. Influenced by Simon Ingram, David Hockney, David LaChapelle, Amanda Lepore, Francis Bacon, Brett Whitely, Jenny Saville & Jack Harbeston.
