Artist Statement

Through performance-based sculpture and video, I explore 'whiteness' and what it means to be white. My work utilizes cultural symbols and products such as crackers, marshmallows, Oreos, and whitening toothpaste as an entry point into a topic that is historically difficult to approach. The performative and interactive aspect of my work allows me to instigate dialogue, reflection, and action around the implications of whiteness. I am committed to using art as a catalyst for conversation and social change—a method of processing and articulating ideas.
