"I create works that examine the female perspective to redirect the male gaze and open up the conversation about sexuality within the expanse of the internet age . The pieces contain several visual contradictions: they are aggressive yet calm, phallic but feminine, weighted but light. They combine a mixture of minute details that make up a language of release, its build-up and lull. The series serve as visual reminders about open ecstatic sexuality that rebukes the marginalization of the objectified gender. What I am attempting to mirror through my paintings is our current cultural epoch and slow down the viewing process to shift the sexual female depiction and find its relevancy in its current millennial trajectory.
