Brooklyn, NY



ARTIST STATEMENT: My work is a process of developing self-referential, allegorical narratives with alter-egos as main characters navigating a media landscape in resistance against media imagery and language selection to describe my reality as a woman of color in America. I explore dislocating found imagery and redefining them with multi-faceted allegorical functions and meanings to reveal the intersection of race, gender and class. I look for imagery that either expands my sense of agency or marginalizes it looking to interrelate the two in reflection of the process of media exposure and its effects in regards to marginalized people in America.
