The Embraces series 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 and patterned abstract field. I am interested in challenging the viewer’s perception while allowing them to fill in narratives of their own. The surface is treated as an object with paint used to reshape, redefine, and sometimes obscure the various images.
