A Queer Pentimento

An ongoing series of sculptural assemblages exploring the altar and reliquary forms combining image and artifact.

ERASURE is a shorthand for the ways in which queer perspectives are silenced; yet like a Pentimento, an otherness emerges through layers of identity. Some of us can’t help but reveal our nature. In my work, obfuscation, abstraction, and the use of ceramics, assemblage, and printmaking are visual strategies and metaphors for my lived experiences.

Glazed ceramic, pigmented plastic, archival print on cotton rag paper, 16.5 x 9 x 6 inches

The poet, Audre Lorde once said “My silences had not protected me. Your silence will not protect you.” It is a small excerpt from a larger essay about the importance of having and using our voices.

My work is interdisciplinary and emerges out of my interest in domestic altarpieces that combine images, artifacts, and ideas tied up with memory, folklore, revisionist histories, queer erasure, absence and obfuscation. I use ceramic sculpture as a primary medium in conjunction with drawing, photography and printmaking and I uses these things to cobble together queer and peculiar forms and images that might cut through my own silence and apathy.
