SELF PORTRAITURE

Acrylic on cardboard. 2018.

I began to use myself as a subject senior year of High School, during the development of my AP Art concentration (a piece from which is pictured above). Since then, my self portraiture has developed into a more overt exploration of gender identity. It is important and powerful for me to control the ways in which I am expressed and portrayed.

I often explore the ways in which our bodies can be used as cites of manipulation, and digital expression. How are our bodies modified, replicated, and disrupted?

I like incorporating texture and text into images to indicated meaning. I play with foreground/background to draw the viewer in and remind them of the collapsing of space and time in digital space.
