“My work embraces the evidence and residue of the corporal experience. I revere the seeping, bruising, sometimes painful aspects of our bodies, and their reaction to physical and emotional environments. Emphasizing the mark itself, these evidences are often separated and decontextualized from the corpus. By incorporating the work into preexisting architecture, such as ‘bruising’ the wall, I
am able to broaden the conversation of what can be considered skin, body, and site of transcription.”
