The Microaggressions/Cinch Couch, 2017.
Deconstructed couch, wire, wood, and 10,000 feet of rope and twine.

Each knot reflects one small, mindless yet purposeful act that creates a fabric covering a hollow framework. You are free to sit there uncomfortably.

Nip Slips
Site specific installation of up to 150 hanging wooden disks of varying sizes, each with individually painted nipple on one side, mirror on the other. Size variable.

Nip Slips is a hanging installation that surprises and greets visitors with glimpses of nipples in varying shapes, sizes and colors. It asks how this functional part of the female body has become so sexualized. Unable to avoid the vision of revealed nipples, and the reflective mirrors on the back of each, visitors must confront their discomfort with the normalcy of the female breast.


Boob Slabs

Boob Slabs is an ongoing series of small paintings on natural wood crosscuts. Each slab is painted to depict a female areola and nipple somewhat abstracted through pattern and color. Through isolation and decontextualization, this usually eroticized portion of the female anatomy is desexualized as well as objectified – literally — while simultaneously emphasizing its implicit individuality and uniqueness.

Each slab ranges in diameter from 3-5 inches, and includes a small hole from which it can be simply and discreetly hung on a small nail or brad. Originally displayed as a group and the 30+ pieces considered to be one artwork, this has evolved into an ongoing series with each unique piece priced and sold individually at $25 each. Photo depicts sample pieces, though the specific pieces shown may have sold. Contact artist for designs presently available.
