Artist statement

My work is largely about power dynamics, sexuality, and gender. An important part of my research comes from practicing Martial Arts and various forms of Sex Work for almost a decade now. I am interested in how these two worlds relate to each other, aesthetically and contextually. I’m drawn to messy situations, inherent contradictions, such as violence and affection, hyper-masculine and homoerotic, playful consensual activities such as fighting and/or BDSM, and jumbled desires.
