Artist's Statement

I am interested in visual subjects exploring authenticity and identity, feminism and destruction. I am curious about the constructs of creativity in bilingual cultures and the limits of language in different cultures. I am disturbed by injustice, and my response was to create a depiction of language's potential ambiguities. Language is power, and lack of voice leads to opportunities for violence. My idea was that if I removed vowels from words, and presented certain phrases, it could create an open dialogue for the viewer. The rest emerged around those letters. Mostly, I am trying to find the universal in all of us. I am sometimes sad that I cannot seem to do that and each attempt pushes me forward to search a little differently.
