My work explores the powerful nature of mass media images that manipulate the way we navigate the classification of a body and dictate our value of self. Through photographing male models, I depict the physical and emotional discomfort when my gender identity does not align with the physicality of my body. I present the viewer with ambiguous or obscured sex characteristics that could be understood as male, female, both, or neither in an attempt to regender the body and reject the socially constructed idea that behavior, body language, and body parts are exclusively for one or the other sex. I utilize printmaking processes to create enticing strokes of color, speckled textures, and tight cropping of my photographic imagery to elevate the naturally occurring physicality of skin that is deemed imperfect in mass media images. Despite the alluring quality of the haptic, curious surface of the paper, the bodily textures I depict are rarely valued in our culture. I employ paper stencils that have been physically burned and altered by a laser cutter to reference the physical body modification via cosmetic or aesthetic surgery. By transferring ink onto paper, I am inviting surface qualities of skin that are typically seen as undesirable in our visual culture to not only exist, but to be regarded as the subject of fine art. When I make work, I think about how important it is to classify a person and their body on documents, social media accounts, or bathroom useage. It has been made easy to simplify a person down to their body parts, to objectify them as we search for what makes us different from or the same as them. I argue that body language, behavior, and sex characteristics are not absolute truths and tend to be more fluid and complex than what the socially constructed binary imposes on us.
