Couched  Vinegar Contemporary 2021




Uncomfortable with decoration being excluded as a medium of power,
I employ floral pattern in an assertive way to rewrite modernism’s hierarchy
.

I am an unsatisfied accomplice.



I stitch and construct to share the stories of my foremothers and myself. Working between ceramics and fiber I generate objects almost suited for domestic space: a quilt that provides no warmth, a pillow that doesn’t comfort. I borrow and digest textiles, wallpaper, gardens and women’s bodies to develop my own alphabet of repetitive marks. Through a personal and political lens I participate in a dialogue with art, craft, and feminism. I advocate for decoration as a medium of power.
