“Feminism has fought no wars. It has killed no opponents. It has set up no concentration camps, starved no enemies, practiced no cruelties. Its battles have been for education, for the vote, for better working conditions, for safety in the streets, for child care, for social welfare, for rape crisis centers, women’s refuges, reforms in the law. If someone says, ‘Oh, I’m not a feminist’, I ask, ‘Why? What’s your problem?’” –Dale Spender, Man Made Language

My work explores the ways in which color, form, and material influence human interpretation of shapes. Drawing inspiration from the female body, my work is abstracted into subtly identifiable sculptures. My current body of work, a collection of layered wall reliefs, investigates body censorship using hand painted, laser-cut acrylic.
Hailing from the unapologetically outspoken East Coast, my work tended to mirror that candid approach to certain topics. Through abstraction and alternative materials, I am now learning to delay information, giving the viewer more agency, and, perhaps, giving the piece a more interesting narrative.
