In questioning the limiting examples of figures that have historically operated in a queer space or exhibited non-traditionally-heteronormative qualities, I critique notions of heroism, narrative and gender. Pulling from mythohistories and folktales, my work explores identity through the languages of drawing and painting. My recent project puts myself in conversation with mythohistorical and legendary figures to examine what these figures do and how their presence produces meaning. The notion of “medium” is central to my work. I utilize media as a visual pun, exhibiting slippage between the perceived, depicted and tangential. The multiplicity of media in my work exists to challenge visual expectations and investigate the meaning of queerness through mark-making. Moving forward, I intend that these pieces will act as a medium for further examination of this range of human experience to take place.
