Artist Statement

Through my use of placement, my work is playful and curious. I interact with objects in a way that feels accessible and inviting to the viewer. My methodology is intended to elicit questions and stir emotions, not necessarily solve problems or provide solutions. My work often suggests ideas about body image, beauty ideology, and feminism. I discovered my current practice by way of sculpture training and for that reason I am a sculptor. My performance work emphasizes sculptural objects that I make. I interact with these objects in my videos and performances or I display these pieces as ephemera of a performance. By utilizing techniques such as stillness, mimicry, and repetition, I am an object in my piece I am working on or performing.

My sculpture is more serious and is often referred to as minimal. In contrast to that, my performance work is hilarious and is described as maximum! I explore these forms separately or I weave these two bodies of work together to create one.
