Artist's Insight:
I take, cut and dismantle sexualized images of women, put them back together, where the linear cuts create a distorted figure that mutates the viewers gaze. The images transform into this interplay between the performance of femininity and cultural norms. Through this transformation, the autonomy of the female form destabilizes the construction of identity and the commodification of beauty.
