With my work I question the projected ideal of normalcy and majority, Feelings of stigmatization and isolation take shape in abstracted figures that exist in a constant state of double consciousness, woven from my own experience of disability and societal minority. I aim to create a space in my work that is both intimate and voyeuristic.
