Artist StatementPosted: March 10, 2015
My work is very personal, looking mostly at themes of feminism and female sexuality. I like to combine visual aesthetics with my own writing to combine my love of art and poetry. Religious symbolism and the idea of Godliness through pregnancy and creating life is also of interest to me. I work in a variety of different mediums from video art, poetry, collage and interactive arts (e.g. websites) as I’m very interested in the way art has reflected technology trends over the years. The use of the internet as a platform to display my art is very interesting to me as it is a way to get my work out to a larger audience.
A large percentage of my work is inspired by the ‘riot grrrl’ culture which I felt a very strong connection with since the first time I saw one of Hole’s music video as a child. The way in which the very powerful messages of female strength and empowerment combines with the often softer, daintier, rose-tinted aesthetic is a reoccurring theme within my own work.
