2016-2017 > Skin

The process of discovering my skin was an extension of a two year sculptural examination of past experiences that influenced the choice I made to suppress my inner self. Skin became an understanding of my vulnerabilities in their rawest form; pure, unfiltered expositions of my thoughts and past situations that manipulated my social abilities. Simultaneously giving power to my previously muted emotions. By elevating my desires, fears, inadequacies, and anxieties as formal introductions to my identity, I was able to separate experience and visceral reaction.
