Artist's Statement

My work/thought process explores my own re-education through research, making connections, relating them to my own experiences and expressing this process for the viewer/participant. The core concept that I have come to realize connects most of my work is the idea of systems: how they frame and support  our lives, the struggle to see them and their flaws, as well as a deep hope reassuring me that systemic change is wanted/recognized-as-needed by all (‘hope” is a loaded word, as I see it as a form of weakness used by the powerful against the oppressed. 278 more words
