My work utilizes signs and signifiers within a landscape that suggests difference, otherness and value. By sign I am referring to both the literal and semiotic use of the word as “something that can be interpreted as having a meaning, which is something other than itself…” Believing that within the landscape are signs (literal, symbolic and semiotic) pointing to race, gender, systemic inequalities and resilience- my peripatetic practice allows for these images, objects and language to become source material for the studio. The conceptually multi-layered works seek to inform and position viewers to recognize their reactions concerning class, othered bodies and how these societal markers materialize in the landscape. By re-creating an experience through a cosmology of works, I am inviting the viewer to reflect on their assumptions, memories and their place in the world.
