Detached from expected presentations, my work is empowered by cultural associations to materials, language, and iconography. Poetic intersections at play create dialectical, contextual space for viewers to experience.
As viewers perceive their place in relation to these suggested boundaries and directives, they can reflect on their own ability to navigate the complexities of our restrictive environments. This outside dynamic highlights the shortcomings of labeling and dividing lines of cultural, spiritual, and political judgment. Through this philosophically charged space, viewers are asked to challenge their assumptions of their environment and the restrictive barriers they build for themselves.
