Title : Curb Your Appetite
Artist Statement :
Curb your Appetite is a body of work being created that seeks to explore limits of gender expression, self-pleasure (physical and emotional), sex, and fashion.
Using a combination of one-of-a-kind handmade and store-bought accessories, I’ve created a variety of surrealist inspired still life’s and portraits. The use of both portraiture and still life in this series was, in my world, the only way to encapsulate all of the subjects this has represented.
This project was started during a pivotal time in my life. The current socio-political climate versus my own confusing adventure of self discovery plus my current location have resulted in a large culmination of bright, colorful, strange, and even grotesque images. I don’t think I can Curb my appetite… can you?
