Work Statement

Buddies
2017

Presented in threesomes, the “Buddies” series playfully blurs the lines between person, costume, creature, and toy by taking the guise of a variety of real and imagined sexual archetypes at a stuffed-animal-sized scale. These works pose questions about the relationships and the dynamics that are formed, within ourselves as well as with our partners, as we continue to learn how to communicate and share ourselves with others. Fastened together in chains, the Buddies stand in queer communion.
