ARTIST STATEMENT

My work examines presentation primarily through portraiture. I’ve always worked to determine my own sense of femininity and self through exploring various ideals and contemporary aesthetics. What kinds of symbology are ‘cool’ and acceptable? Social media has synthesized this notion of ‘hip aesthetics’ to a science, providing direct metrics for what kinds of art/imagery are popular. Thusly, my portraits have always been, in a sense, a modern iconography, but I’ve now formalized that relationship with the “Head Canon” series.

I work almost exclusively with vectors but often manipulate the printed result to create a greater sense of dimension (reflective Mylar, gilding, etc.) and audience interaction.

I am a curator/founder of Mantle Art Space. Please direct all inquiries to mantlestudios@gmail.com
