Artist Statement

My studio practice encompasses contemporary drawings, photography, sculpture, sound works, and installation. My work explores the perception of women and social, cultural, or political issues serving as a metaphors of layers for real-life conditions. In Pictures of the Body: Pain and Metamorphosis, James Elkins proposes that the body is everywhere especially when there is an absence of the form. “Every picture is a picture of the body. To say this is to say that we see bodies; even where there are none." My works refer to something difficult to remove suggesting that a bigger materiality exists under the surface. In my process, I investigate the material on and under the surface questioning, What is hidden? What is revealed? What is affected?
