About

As an artist, I aim to not only change the dialogue concerning art and accessibility on a global scale, but to also introduce previously ignored issues such as abuse and trauma which refuse to adhere to a specific group - to engage on a human level. I am interested in using the gaze as a tool to simultaneously establish and question notions of agency and control deriving from historical legacies of objectification of women and children. By creating life-sized drawings of my sisters and presenting them on the floor, I am encouraging the viewer to consider two critical ideas — the vulnerability stemming from the way in which the work is presented, and the way in which this vulnerability alters the perception of not only the work, but the subject of the work as well.
