Visual Aesthetic

Hello readers,

It’s been so long since I’ve posted on this blog! So much has been happening these days. In celebration of being active, I thought I’d write a short post on my own visual aesthetic. I got an MFA in Studio Art after doing my undergrad in Theater & Original Works because I knew the importance of both the theatrical and the visual in my work. I create objects for theater and theater for objects. When I write, I see images. This translates into performance and film projects (often both at once) that are stylized and visually bold. Below are a few inspirations that I use frequently in my work:

Face Off

Well, tonight was the opening of my newest video installation piece, titled “Face Off”. I have to say, it is one of the most vulnerable pieces of art I’ve ever made in my life. And I’m still not sure how I feel about showing it. But, these past two weeks of preparing the installation have been the most inspiring two weeks of action and direct result than I have experienced in a while. There’s something about having a deadline and just going for it; putting all the energy you have into it to create something to the best of your ability. All in all, I’ve learned a lot from this process. I still feel vulnerable, but sometimes letting your vulnerability show itself to the world is just about one of the best things you could do with it.

Here are a few pictures of the video aspect of the piece. More from the opening and installation to come soon…. :
