As an artist who works in photography, collage and film, I am very interested in the crossover between static and dynamic images, and in exploring how both can be conjoined to challenge the viewer’s emotional response. My collages combine disparate images that reconfigure the human body and generate new narratives that explore identity, sexuality, and the subconscious. In my current body of work titled (In)Visible, identities and bodies are tangled and draped with fabric. The fabric represents the beginning and end of the life cycle. Bodies emerge and disappear from fabric, as do histories and allegories.
