“Almost all the artifacts that we value as a society were made by or at the order of men. But behind every one is an invisible infrastructure of labor — primarily care-giving, in its various aspects — that is mostly performed by women.” – Debbie Chachra
Deconstructing societal norms regarding labor has been instrumental in shaping my work. I create installations, drawings, and sculpture that all connect to a larger framework which question the social construct that insinuate debased gender and labor stereotypes. Through labor, pattern, repetition, and the grid my work functions as political and physical archaeology of personal experience navigating the norm. It is informed by history, culture, the passage of time, and the poetry of daily life. Organized in series, my work spans the gap of being sensual, subtle and political in any combination.
