artist statement

Vulnerability, hybridity, and ritual inform my practice through their intimate, interconnected, and cyclical nature. The theatrical scale of my drawings combined with my intuitive body movements creates psychological landscapes which hybridize both imagined and remembered imagery. In my videos and performances, I present looped tasks which are both constantly evolving yet remaining stagnant in any sense of progress. The body is used as an amorphous structure both visually and psychologically to question expectations and bias. My own diverse ethnicity has played a significant role in questioning normative categorizations to which hybridity does not conform. As such, I view hybridity as a rabbit hole of possibilities with ambiguity as its greatest strength for discovering alternative perspectives.

These core elements guide my developing body of work, "Anticipatory|Después", which captures the complex layers of trauma, dying, and grief through a caregiver’s eyes. Each piece presents a looped scenario which is constantly evolving yet remaining stagnant in any sense of progress. The body is utilized as an active site of physical and emotional affliction of the dying, the caregiver, and at times the two concurrently.
