Artist statement

How do you see me? explores traces of the female body critiquing the heavy scrutiny it attracts. Videos and scans  capture the movement of hands and faces creating tension  through performance, abstraction, layering and animation.  The work is intent on disrupting scopophilic instincts and the paradoxical objectification of women bound to their ‘inherent  narcissism’. I aim to challenge the controversy surrounding  female  artists’ embodiment in art as arousing conventions  behind the omniscient male gaze.
