Artist Statement

I focus on perceptions and expectations as arbiters of identity. My body serves as a tool, a measuring device, and a way to set parameters based on my physical abilities. By investigating labor and repetition, I am also tracking my personal growth. My awareness of social and cultural standards acts as a means to reflect on and confront my relation to ideals. The delicate nature of this query is captured in the ephemeral, seemingly fragile qualities of my work.
