Who, or what is your work in conversation with?
My work is in conversation with feminist and queer themes and theory, with an underlying dose of Christianity and religion. I am also fascinated by trauma on a cellular level and its connection to ancestral lineage. My work is about storytelling through the medium of body/self in collaboration with the moving image and video. Body art and performance art surface our embeddedness in the determinations of meaning and value.
Some of the artists that I gain inspiration from are Ana Mendieta, Carolee Schneemann, Yayoi Kusama, Hannah Wilke, Audre Lorde, and so many others. I am interested in the intersection of femininity, sexuality, and queer theory and culture. It is this intersection where I reside, and within this marginalized crack that my work takes form.
