Artist's statement

Full Artist's statement

As a lesbian my work has been centered on issues of queer identity. I am interested in the ways in which we create an intelligible identity with all its inherent complexities and ambiguities. For the marginalized, the piecing together of identity becomes complicated and intensified while negotiating daily in a hegemonic straight, male culture.

This work represents a sector of the marginalized who internalized their abject feelings of difference. Each piece conveys a specific affect of the trauma endured as a result of social interaction with 'normative' culture.
