As a woman with a transgender history I am aware of limitations and stigma and I question how much freedom do we have? Where are our boundaries? What is happening in the gender war, the notion of what a woman is or can be and how people shape their beliefs. What is the common ground? What can paint and a painting do?
The human condition and questions of identity are central to my work. I am interested in themes of power and identity. These connect us all and yet we are individuals. The work is also informed by my multi-national, cultural and religious background and is autobiographical and confessional with political undercurrents which allow me to point my attention towards the dialogue between painting, what it’s doing now and its history. I use drawing and written notes combined with photography to navigate between the intuitive, intellectual and aesthetic content.
