Artist Statement

My work challenges and critiques tradition within society, art history, and its political and social manifestations.  Utilizing installation, video, drawing, and print, I break away from conventional approaches in art making; referencing misogyny, power dynamics, current events, and gender roles. Repetition becomes a vital element, acting as the glue in a collection of works with seemingly unrelated mediums and materials ranging from wall sized installations, to business cards, to inflatable punching bags and block printed toilet paper and further supports the subversive nature of my content.   Disrupting societal expectations as a female in political and art communities, my work attempts to stimulate an atmosphere for thought and discussion.
