COME OF AGE
Motivated by family trauma and childhood hardships, this work creates a narrative of growth and self discovery that bounces between the dark and the light. I use domestic spaces and eerie qualities of the home to reference the possibility of something unsettling in a place that is normally thought of as comforting and familiar. By using my body to explore more metaphorical ways of signifying violence, rejection, and self acceptance, this work strives for discomfort and tension, for the viewer to witness anxiety, sexuality, privacy, and fear.
These are some other images made for this body of work that weren't included in the final wall display, but were included in the take aways for the show.
