나는 유기적인 형태를 통하여 성과 관능에 초점을 두는 작품을 만든다. 나는 힘, 성별, 욕망에 대한 질문을 던진다. 미국내 총기 폭력에 내재된 양상들에 대하여 묻는다. 나는 혐오적이며 선동적인 폭력의 성격을 포착하고 싶다. 나의 작품은 여성적이며 남성적이고, 아름답고 폭력적이며, 자연적이며 인공적이다.

Through organic forms, my work focuses on sex and sensuality. Now, I’m questioning power, gender, and desire; integral aspects of US gun violence. I want to capture the repellant and seductive nature of violence. They are a combination of the feminine and masculine, beautiful and violent, natural and artificial.
