I’m interested in the in-between spaces, whether physically or mentally. As a biracial woman, I myself am an in-between space, but also mentally I find myself in a liminal space. I feel most comfortable in these spaces and want to explore more of them - creating my own world and collapsing realities. Through this exploration, I hope to explore my past but also my future.
I utilize a variety of mediums such as painting, photography, and video to help explore liminality. Some of my influences include Gerhard Richter, Fiona Tan, Basim Magdy, Wong Kar Wai along with influences through literature such as the author Haruki Murakami and works such as Homesick for Another World and the Lathe of Heaven.
