  • This piece is reflective of both my experience as a transgender artist as well as my struggle with mental illness and trauma. It is a reflection of myself in a crucifixion pose which represents trauma and turmoil. The wedge shaped tear shows that the body is little more than a distructible object. The true essence of self being represented by the red sphere. This piece is a statement about the body being nothing more that a mundane vessel, which plays in to my gender transition as well as the da…
  • This piece is about three distinct instances of abuse that I was exposed to when I was younger. My father slamming me into a door until it broke is represented by wood fragments. Having to walk across broken glass to get my morning breakfast represented by the glass shards. Finally, witnessing my mother threaten my younger sister with a knife for not putting on her shoes being represented by the polka dot mountains, reflective of what my sister was wearing that day. In the center of it all is m…
  • #Syzygy depicts a plague doctor carrying a red sphere, a representation of my heart, through a dismal and hellish background. This piece is about my struggle with the loss of my daughter, represented by the butterfly, to disease when she was two years old.

The horizon and signature cue the viewer that it should b…
  • Sister painting to #Syzygy, #Herz is about the loss of my daughter from heart disease when she was two years old. The #Herzeleid series has established the red sphere as representative of my heart; however, in this piece, it represents that of my daughter's being taken from her. The title #Herz was chosen from the German word for heart because it could be read as "hers" by English speakers, cueing the viewer that the heart depicted does not represent the artists as in other pieces.

  •     This piece is oriented in the correct position. The horizon and signature cue the viewer that it should be one way, while the hanging wire forces the piece to be hung from the least likely perspective. This is to place emphasis on the butterfly and create the feeling that its orientation is the correct one.
