My practice explores phases of personal trauma with a focus on disassembling toxic femininity. Trauma manifests in many variations, and I consider it essential that I exemplify that within my work. Using my lived experiences as research, my practice contemplates how they open our perspectives of those close to us. I highlight these phases of trauma by combining various mediums such as photography, videography, printmaking and autoethnography with found objects. When observing my work, I aim to push the spectator to look inwards within my space.
Many trauma-related energies reverberate from my work, such as anger, detachment, euphoria and anxiety. These energies help me deconstruct learnt and inherited female behaviours, including casual and internalised sexism. Both being relevant terms many women today choose not to acknowledge or even still may not be conscious of. When I take an image, I consider the space around the subject as my viewpoint, leaving the subject as part of a broader story. This mindset also flows over into how I connect each of my pieces within a gallery space.
