Feminism breeds resistance; breeds hope; breeds futurity. My work attempts to represent the emotional struggles of contemporary existence. Especially as a feminine presenting person I often feel torn between the things that are expected of us. Be assertive!… just don’t cause any inconvenience. We go about our lives conflicted, and it’s easy to miss things when you’re too busy counting all your steps.
ABOUT THE ARTIST
Art, first and foremost, is a healer. One would wonder how that is, since an artist’s life is an endless pursuit of arbitrary feelings to collect and purge onto the world, where they will be displayed and dissected by people who don’t know you, and often don’t care to know you. It’s less than glamorous, though we’re not meant to know that. Still my practice is the most sacred thing to me, because despite the chaos and uncertainty of life, every once in a while I get to look at something I created and see total peace.
