Artist statement

My work uses discarded textiles assembled to evoke personal, ancestral, and cultural memory as a form of sustenance and resistance within the patriarchal, capitalist, white supremacist societal structure in which we currently live. I choose to use castaway and discarded items in the making art objects to serve as a metaphor for the people and things that exist on the margins of society. Reclaiming that which has been disposed of and/or rejected and highlighting the beauty and richness of it helps to re-center my orbit around humanness as opposed to maleness, greed, and whiteness. I use the accumulated history embodied within found objects, memories projected onto these objects by myself and the viewer, to tell a story that is different than the one larger society declares as truth. It is through this practice that sustain my humanness and resist/transform the forces that wish to deny it.
