Love Me Tender

Inspired by the Bride of Frankenstein, I wanted to explore the idea of the female identifying body being created or built upon a patriarchal design. Deeming femininity as inherently monstrous or hypersexualised has been a classic way of discrediting female identifying figures and revolutionary movements. Interested in the ideologies of the monstrous feminine, I create work that embraces wicked imagery in order to reappropriate this narrative.

My sculptures and installations are meant to explore our conceptions of queerness, sexuality, and femininity through the use of dark humor, macabre and camp aesthetic.
