Bodies and identities are always in flux and changing, never stable. My work represents and (re)imagines the possibilities of what we are and what we might become. Each of my works is formed using a number of life models. Their fractured shapes and bodies show us the delusion of separated bodies and truly formed identities, whether that be gender, nationality, or age; just to name a few of the ways we are often separated from each other and siloed into “the individual”.
My work is mixed medium, comprising of acrylic paints and markers, ink pens, and oil pastels. I’m particularly interested in bodies and their shapes, and as such have developed a life drawing business (@lastpeekstudio) as a means to ongoing access to life models and the inspiration they provide.
