I am proud to present the Marionette Suite. This series of self portraits examines vulnerability through the guise of disembodiment. There’s a sweet moment when an artist slips beneath control. In the process of making art, I celebrate the loss of awareness. I am free when working from within, untethered to thought. Even if what comes to the surface is the worst experience of my life.
I would be disingenuous of me to deny the obvious references. Never far below the surface is the trauma of the drug induced paralysis and rape. The nightmare is no longer alive, demanding constant care. But I have come to respect it’s presence. And allow it to scream through my art.
