John and June Allcott Gallery

Artist statement:

My work over the last four years has been influenced by ideas of familial fragmentation, the disintegration of identity, and emotional disembowelment through means of experimental photographic and printmaking processes. As an artist and poet, I am devoted to an interdisciplinary practice that dissects my own personhood and ultimately cultivates physical and emotional spaces for my interior to reside in. My life as a child, adolescent, and now burgeoning adult has been circumscribed by feelings of discomfort, both within my body and outside of it—my work exists as a plane through which I search for the sense of comfort that has continued to elude me. Both my visual and written works attempt to find balance between the transparency of silence and the iridescence of beauty. My narrative is one of quietness and my work stands as a sort of atonement for the pain inflicted upon my loved ones and onto my past selves. It is a reconciliation, a reclamation—an understanding.
