Mixed Media Artist
My art practice addresses the unrest within my own mind and body, the way it looks and its capabilities or incapabilities. Using any material that feels right, from film to performance to collage, my work uses depictions of hyper-muscled, often masculine bodies, to represent myself as that which I can never be. We are constantly bombarded with how to look better, sexier, thinner and I conform to this in ridiculous ways such as performing as a bodybuilder with drawn on abs or covering my body in cut outs from bodybuilding magazines. I also use cut outs of muscular shapes to represent myself and everything around me.
