I embrace the messiness, sadness, beauty, and pain of material bodies in my work. I am interested in what it means to occupy a body and its substance, without restricting that experience to a single truth. Instead, I try to materially express the private relationship between me and my body, skin, and flesh. Not flesh as meat, nor as sex, but as a deeply subjective and personal experience.
This piece references and functions as a painting but a heavy physical mass is emphasized through the frame.
