My version of Truth

Artist Statement

My work explores the nature of identity, as it relates to our conception of reality. I use a variety of mediums, with a focus on traditionally editioned media (photography and printmaking), to critique the way we use language to reinforce social hierarchies. Specifically, I'm interested in how ideas like originality and authenticity can become suffocating. By utilizing techniques and practices associated with editions my work exposes how we use these structures to manipulate people by creating and maintaining artificial constructs that reinforce a sense of identity rooted in division.
