My work explores the notion of experience as touch and emotional and physical endurance performed by females. Texture and surface become influential in their ability to relay conditions of the individuals. Physical sensations from previous experiences appear in details, revealing exposed skin, pressed bodies, and simple physical form observations concerning others in space. Inherited ideas of misogyny and expectations concerning gender are entry points to my subjects. There are beliefs woven into the gestures we perform, passed down from one another that lie amongst the quotidian. Simple interactions we repeat and observe, performed by our mothers, grandmothers, and sisters. I use photography as a mediator to address gender and beliefs issues that can be difficult to discuss, drawing from personal experience, and making photos through witnessed and staged performances.
