ARTIST STATEMENT


 

My work is a commentary on our culture of observation, escapism, and the construction of femininity. I depict the female relationship with her body and its resilience despite constant scrutiny and commodification. 

I explore psychological masking and the everyday performance of womanhood, using disguise as a means to reject the public self as perceived by others.  

I am interested in the forms and functions of identity and how they are displayed. I value the idea of body freedom within a system that does not view a woman’s body as her own.
