Artist statement

The word peel suggests a removal - an intermediary, protective sheet, or covering that is able to contain or reveal what lies beneath. A layer, skin, or mask, to be discarded, though essential to the processes of both growth and repair. 
I use performance to combine familial mythologies with the complicated cultural and geo-political material histories of my sculptures, in order to speak to the multiplicity and hybridity of being a mixed race, queer person in America. Coming from a multi-generational family of dentists, I collect discarded dental equipment that I use as surrogates to narrate passed down oral history tales of migratory resilience, resourcefulness and play. I often use humor in my work, and consider the ways in which joy can operate as a tactic of political resistance. Through this process of telling and re-telling, I engage with an iterative practice which treats permutation and sampling as an act of preservation and regeneration.
As I combine mediums and processes to create my work, my practice remains still-moving. Between the spaces of objects, and the gums of my teeth, I carry intention, hopefulness, and possibility within the boundlessness of creation - that everything ever made was once imaginary, and made into belief.
