Using domestic tropes and feminist theory, my practice examines the deconstruction of conventional forms in order to address patterns within gender, domesticity, exclusion, and violence. Through re-encoding the familiar, household articles become vehicles for both embracing and subverting a assigned spheres. By reframing cakes, textiles, and other objects as graceful yet defiant, I invite viewers to complicate binary notions of femininity, contemplate more complex meanings, and consider the related political, economic, and social implications.
