My work concerns my autobiography, which I articulate in multimedia installations, sculpture and expanded painting practices. I often recontextualise and reposition my childhood trauma and queer identity through casting baby blankets into uncanny forms, creating gangly foal legs out of wax and tracing erotic cartoon foxes to simulate abject bodies. My work often involves quick fixes such as tacking, pressing, stapling, stretching and hand-stitching to metaphorically represent the transitional development of the body. In creating a dialogue between past and present, my work acts to reconcile incongruous parts of my identity in order to initiate reflection and positive change.
We acknowledge and pay respect to the Traditional Owners of the lands upon which our campus is situated, the people of the Boon Wurrung and Woi Wurrung, who have created art, made music and told their stories here for thousands of generations. We also acknowledge and extend our respect to the Traditional Owners of all lands on which our work is viewed, shared and enjoyed, and to all Elders, past, present and emerging.
