Artist Statement

Historically the social injustice of disability identity was constructed from eugenics programs and institutionalized biomedical infrastructure. Art on this subject is overdue to empower through a visual language and social platform to prejudicial misconceptions in effort to advocate disability pride and awareness. Objectification and perfectibility of the human body will continue to prevail, until art explores the oppressive stigmatizations associated with disability identity. I source my material from exposing the conflicts I face with multiple sclerosis. My art transforms space allowing the audience to become voyeurs entering my private medical world to expose the heightened oppressive realities and truths.
