The Opposite Sex
Open Art Calls Accepted Artists
Urbana, Illinois USA
Meeting at the intersections of sexuality and art, humor and craft, and fetish and fabric, my research focuses on sublimating sexual iconography by encompassing both genders into whimsical forms that arouse physical and emotional sensations. I incorporate mundane materials, such as tattered clothing, whose fabric scars reveal their connection to the body in movement. Through the process of deconstruction and reconstruction of the materials into symbolic sexual forms, I add a tactile quality into my work, which encourages interaction by audience. Touching, holding, wearing, and playing with these pieces allow them to formulate their own conclusions on the nature of sensuality.
