Gender, Identity & Self
Some of my artworks explore personal hardships and triumphs as subjects unto themselves. I also examine identity, including assumptions based on gender. I often approach the topic of gender in my art by questioning, deconstructing, reexamining and redefining male/female roles and expectations. I am especially interested in gender stereotypes, roles and ideals. I strive to blur boundaries between male/female by crossing back and forth, hybridizing and/or eschewing gender-based distinctions. I also explore taboo topics related to gender, such as menstruation and female reproductive health.
Please be aware: Some of these works are suggestive in nature and/or may include materials that some would find offensive.
