Artist Statement

My reimagined readymades use sophisticated whimsy to mask serious undertones. I want my practice to be a medium of activism through interdisciplinary methods and community collaborations. When inspired by an object or idea, I interrogate it and use my research to explore race, culture, and humanity. I try to foster a relationship with my materials-I'm interested in how they were made and how they were used in the past. Integrating my readymades into neighborhood art camps and community projects fosters cross-cultural awareness and social change.
