Artist Statement

These new works have emerged out of our shelter in place months and I loosely refer to them as 'Covid Collages'. They are not so much about the current pandemic, but they reflect my immediate response to being home and in my studio more than usual. The works themselves are an evolution of an earlier body of work, the Situated Becomings series, where I considered the evolving understanding of gender in these Posthuman times. These works continue to explore gender issues across human and non-human integration, where gender is a form of becoming…becoming something new and expansive.

Science and art are my two main interests and in this work and I see them combined in imaginative ways. Genetic manipulation afforded by CRISPR technologies and our developing sense of the agency of all non-human beings merge in these pieces to explore possible outcomes or connections. Nature and technology have much to teach us and are venues to our expanded sense of humanity. My work scratches the surface of what may be and what is possible.
