My paintings and sculptures acknowledge the ennoblement of women. I assert the female in a position of power. Influenced by Eurocentric religion, my pieces include casts of the human body and paintings circulating around historical events of martyrdom, annunciation and other religious happenings. These references highlight the extensive history in which women are delegated inferior status.
This injustice as my backdrop, my work explores the pertinent and appropriate delegation of femininity. The heterogeneous complexity of women demands a delicate balance of distinct and often polarizing characteristics. Evolving from critique to embodiment and then to cultural reassignment, I am curious about how the female nude exists within a spiritual landscape. These women invite candid conversation about religion, sexuality, vulnerability and strength.
