Artist's Statement

My work focuses on what queer form looks like through the visual strategy of sculptural abstraction in relation to beauty, camp, and post-AIDS ethos. I investigate this form by combining performance, sculpture, and installation as a way to see how the body resists or submits through materiality and technique vis-à-vis obsessive acts, strict parameters, repetition, and forms of discipline.
