Artist Statement

I explore the visualization of identity in my work using photography, drawing, collage and video. I am concerned with race and gender in relation to the body and how the body becomes codified within these socially constructed categorizations. More specifically I am interested in inbetweeness and how “unidentifiable” bodies—that do not identify with standard categories—negotiate identity.
