Self-Portrait (As Mother)

Photograph, archival pigment print, 2016, 16"w x 16"h

From an early age I was pushed from the male-dominated den of my family and into a seat at the women’s table. My adolescence was spent as the darling of the four Madonnas I had doting on my every move. When I step in front of the lens I am interested in queering heteronormative space through candy-coated hyperreal tableaux. These are reimagined from my childhood misguidings, porn films, pop culture, heartbreaks, hookups and the melting pots created in between.
