Personal Statement

I am an artist, printmaker, and educator based in Chicago, IL, and have exhibited nationally in San Francisco, Minneapolis, Cincinnati, Memphis, and New York. While making work, I think about things like Futurity, Slime, Pageantry, Exploring the Possibility of Radicalizing Contemporary Queer Night Life, Body Hair, Doubt, the Problematics of Aestheticizing Community, Labor vs. Value vs. Reward, and "Projects" vs. "Objects". In addition to my own work in interdisciplinary media, I make artist's editions with No Coast, do collaborative programming with Chances Dances, and edit an online and print journal called Monsters and Dust.
