Our bodies are the home of definitions, perceptions and anxieties. What we wear, what we say, how we act all encompass who we think we are. I want to take this cycle of definition and self-perception and flip it on its head; I want to bend and expand the way you see the world.
My work is an examination of different forms that define our bodies and how they affect the way we perceive our bodies in the world. I use objects that resemble parts of the body in order to encourage the viewer to identify with my work.
Un-Removed looks at hair through pop-culture and fashion and allows for the experience of both beauty and repulsion simultaneously.
