Artist Statement
Outward Facing Inner Worlds

My work engages the themes of home and belonging through mixed-media paintings rooted in processes typically assigned feminine. I explore the gendered expectations of private and public spheres. This series works to blur how have Western “women’s” spaces been historically and contemporarily coded as private and how have the spaces of paid labor been coded as male/public.

These works also encourage reflection on our path into others’ private spaces through the lens of social media curation. By creating square canvases framed as though they might be on an Instagram feed, I call attention to the tension between our authentic relationships to our home spaces and the staged interior images that might make up our social media timelines. As Instagram further facilitates what feminist media scholars have pointed to as women’s expertise being confined to “The Four F’s: Food, Fashion, Family, and Furnishings” I paint narrative interior scenes to encourage us to think about if it is possible to embrace these categories connected to femininity with pride.
