My work functions as an axis where knowledge, nature, and gender intersect. I seek the flicker of hazy perception, the subtle non-mark that appears only after a long look, the weight of depth, the pleasure of an optical trick, and the sense of bodies absent. I consider my practice one of expansive drawing where the line is a stitch, ink, pressure and planar separation creating a cursive line that follows the contours of bodies and creates textuality.
The submersive/ subversive body is the centre of my current research, where the submersive body is represented in deep sea animals and the subversive body in the performative drag or queer body. These bodies extend beyond existing lines, past gender boundaries and sea levels. The subject of deep sea animals is used to discuss Other bodies that slip between being monstrous and beautiful. I also work with textiles as a way of illustrating female and Other histories, which are narratives told in unconventional methods and are not included in official social narratives.
