I'm working to create objects and pictures of objects that look like they've come out of our bodies--like I've excavated or removed parts that are suppose to stay inside us & remain unseen. I'm also working to show views inside the body--like an investigator or an explorer taking us to places where we don't belong and perhaps where we don't want to be or to where we secretly desire to be. I'm working to show parts and places inside of us that are dark, visceral, gross, glorious, vulnerable, sexual, feminized, diseased, deformed, vital, dejected, full of pain and withholding of our stress, anxiety, fear and grief. I am reclaiming the patriarchal gaze of the psychoanalyst, of the astronaut, of the surgeon, of the media, of the consumer of smut and special cereal that will make you thinner. I am reclaiming the gaze to provide an experience of discomfort, ambivalence, disgust, enamoration, curiosity, lust and estrangement. By aesthetically providing such experiences, I aim to inspire a deeper awareness of our bodies and the meanings they carry.
