Interdisciplinary Visual Artist

b. 1989, USA, under a dark moon

My work explores the slippery relationships between power, magic, and ecology.

Recently, I have been playing with power through the constructs of gender and nature, using hunting and sexual desire as a way to trace the complex movements of power between bodies. I am currently building on these themes, focusing on troubling the distinctions between what we define as magic and science; subject and object; mind and body.

Material poetics is deeply important to me. I believe all the materials I work with are active collaborators in my process—they all speak in their own ways and have their own agency. However, they are also imbued with our human cultural connotations. Like ingredients in a potion, each material builds layers of meaning and energy in the work. Frothing and bubbling, they come together and transform into something new.
