"My practice is an examination of the social constructs I live within- particularly the boundaries of gender and death. Both concepts create connections between our physical and mental presence as well as provide parameters to observe and react to the presence of others. The act of art making is an effort to understand and ultimately challenge these structures through visual and experiential stimuli. Rather than reconcile with normativity, I strive to reveal the artifice of our systems."
