My paintings are split into sections of paper, zones of color, or layers of linear imagery. Through the subject matter of female and androgynous dancers and athletes, I explore performances of gender on the dance floor or in the sports arena. These are highly gendered spaces and also simultaneously sites where rigidly-enforced gender norms are challenged. By presenting images with varying levels of recognizability and conflicting orientations towards a seemingly unified space, my paintings resist these assumptions, instead encouraging the viewer to take up different positions and find coexistence between the parts.
