Artist Statement

Artist Statement

Since I was a confused young queer in a place and time of collective denial that such a thing even existed, I've been driven to challenge given narratives and create new ones. As a visual artist, I nurture alternative stories by dreaming, listening, distorting, questioning and impersonating. I have explored many media in this story-telling experiment--drawing, print media, installation, dialogue, kinetic sculpture and the moving image. 

Parallel to my creative life, I have spent years fighting for real-world change in movements struggling for social and economic justice and queer liberation. When these two strands overlap, collaborative radical stories come to life in the form of political graphics and films, street theater, and creative intervention.
