How Deep

Acrylic on plywood, 2018, 18"w x 20.5"h x 1"d

Close engagement with the material qualities inherent to each form and medium has served as the foundation for my artistic practice. I have realized that more of my practice has to do with the different ways I can manipulate my material in order to express different past experiences or movements within the queer community. I have found that I can explore identity through a complex, industrially produced material layered with “content” from its natural, organic source. Each piece of plywood is not completely changed in the manufacturing process but rather edited. No two panels are truly alike.
