Artwork > The Narratives

This series revolves around themes that have been surfacing within my work over the last decade and to which my work now orbits. This focuses on the male figure as a catalyst for a conversation on the crossroads of my own sexual identity, patriarchy within American culture, and gender representation. Using magazine
images cut out from erotica and periodicals, I move images from their original context and place them in a layered abstract manner. I am interested in challenging
the viewer’s perception while allowing them to fill in narratives of their own. The surface is treated organically with paint used to reshape, redefine, and sometimes
obscure the various images.
