Artist statement: “The evocation of desire influences my decision to utilize images of women, specifically in the form of self-portraiture. In my practice, I strive to use consumer waste, cutoffs, and thrown-away materials. I work intuitively with materials, exploring ideas of desire and consumption by utilizing recycled and overlooked materials such as confectionaries, glass, metals, soaps, and cosmetics. I question ideas of commercialism and my practice, how I consume and am consumed by my environment. The tension and contradictory nature of my work is the catalyst for my self-exploration. By utilizing my own body in tandem with both ephemeral and lasting materials, I am responding to change, aging, my own ideas of desire, beauty, and the search for identity.” nhint=”false” language=”default” poweredby=”false” maptypecontrol=”true” pancontrol=”true” zoomcontrol=”true” scalecontrol=”true” streetviewcontrol=”true” scrollwheelcontrol=”false” draggable=”true” tiltfourtyfive=”false” addmarkermashupbubble=”false” addmarkermashupbubble=”false” addmarkerlist=”214 S.
