Archival pigment print of my father is juxtaposed with a still from the James Bond film
Goldfinger. The photographs are matted, framed in plexi and custom fit into a found wooden
pallet. The pallet is adorned with plumbing solder. The gold flake vials pictured in the image
belonged to my late grandmother and are not included with purchase.
I make work with the material and aesthetic byproducts of working class life in order to unravel narratives which perpetuate economic falsIties and meritocratic myths. I utilize video, performance, sculpture, archival research, and photography. My family, especially my father, feature heavily in my work. I pull from autobiographical experiences to ask questions and reveal unflattering truths about financial hardship and its implications on romance, family, body, and desire. Tenderness, personality, and exertion are both material and antidote.
