bleaching my teeth, 2022
Ceramic, found objects
How can I celebrate the banal while also pushing against heteronormative ideals to highlight subversive narratives? bleaching my teeth embodies the vulnerability of domestic residence in relation to constructed realities of personhood and precarity.
As an artist, I look for inspiration from the world around me, often finding myself to be an observer of my reality. Therefore I am always looking to perceive and study space in an attempt to define and develop a language surrounding chaos and control. Sometimes feeling like a guest in my own body this drive to create is a process of healing my autonomy and recognizing the conditions of the physical world which I inhabit.
A peak into the process…
Through the use of ceramics, sculpture, and installation bleaching my teeth emphasizes abstraction as a non-objective reference to the ever-present consistency of tomorrow. The staged and curated display of information offers the viewer an aestheticized idea of chaos in the mundane and beauty in the banal.
