Painters & Sculptors Grant, 2020
I like to make collections of things that can be arranged in different ways. I am interested in the use of modular components to convey an underlying mobility of signs and circulation of meaning. My subject matters are both personal and political, including issues dealing with gender, humor, figuration, and representation.”
