Portrait of artist in RCA studio.

I strive to delve into the transitional spaces that exist between the external and internal realms of my body. In doing so, I seek to establish connections between the familiar and unfamiliar, the known and the unknown, and the human and nonhuman aspects of existence. My aim is to surpass the boundaries and limitations imposed by societal beliefs regarding what constitutes a body as a means of confronting or embracing my own feelings of alienation or detachment from physicality. I am particularly intrigued by exploring the internal bodily sensations that serve as emotional reactions or responses, such as the knotting or tickling of the insides. Furthermore, I am captivated by the delicate nature of flesh, perceiving my body as simultaneously tangible and intangible, with definite form and yet evading form. When contemplating my body from an internal perspective, I conjure up images of enigmatic entities, abandoning conventional anatomical ideologies and instead reimagining the inner depths based solely on personal experiences and emotions. I try to replicate bodily sensations visually; by doing so, I am creating an abstract representation of the body as a foreign entity, one that is separate from our conventional understanding of it as a biological machine. Investing my relationship with the body, particularly the ways in which the body can be divided, medicalized, sexualized, and emotionally separated through representation.

My artistic process is deeply connected to my own experiences of bodily sensations and emotions, particularly those that are uncomfortable. By breaking the body down into individual parts and reassembling them, I am exploring the idea of the body as something that is both whole and fragmented, both physical and emotional. I use materiality as an index to the body, assigning and connecting a type of material to a specific part of the body and using them almost exclusively. By using visual language that reflects the layered and multifaceted nature of the body, I challenge viewers to think more deeply about their own relationships to their physical selves.

Pink Flushes of Fleshy Blushes, 2023, Oil on Canvas, 150 x 203 cm

A Tapestry of Pink:

Powdery pink dreams, whispered in the night,

Painted on horizons, ethereal and light,

Passionate whispers, secrets taking flight,

A pink aurora, illuminating with might.

Princesses and pretties, pink gowns and pearls,

Pigtails and pouts, petite little girls,

Pink ribbons and bows, unfurling twirls,

Perfumed memories, pink blossoms in the air,

Promises of youth, a world beyond compare,

Pink laughter echoing, innocence to share,

A tender pink bloom, a moment's affair.

Perception shifting, pink blending with the real,

Parallel worlds, both tangible and ideal,

A body, a vessel, flesh's tender seal,

Pink hues transcending, beyond what we feel.

Pulsating rhythms, immaterial and unseen,

Pink energy coursing through veins pristine,

Perception bending, boundaries in between,

The physical and ethereal, a realm unforeseen.
