Z Axis



Artist Statement

As an interdisciplinary creator, I seek to kindle the notion of conceptually charged visual poetry, while fostering kinship amongst the mediums of visual art, movement, and language. At the crux of my creative praxis lies ‘the divide of self’, the symbiosis of identifying with the queer community and an established belief system, and the ‘pursuit of shalom’, articulating experiences of bliss and collective human sensation. Stirring conversations of unspoken taboos, my recent studies have investigated the anamnesis and the body’s retention of trauma, site-specific choreography, biomimicry, and the integration of self-blown neon tubing with stained-glass panels navigating identity hierarchy.

How it fits into contest

Specifically looking from a depth perspective, as if the view of God to Earth, the mixed-media painting, 'Z-Axis' considers time, human connections, the heavenly realm, memories’ ability to Horcrux themselves to objects, and our spiritual armor to rebuke them. Dust to dust or sublime sovereignty, solidarity threaded the embroidered navy sailor buttons, actualizing the relation to the modern-day battlefront and suit of armor. This work also considers our greatest ally on the battlefields of life, spiritual gifts that equip us on the frontline, and the oxidization of copper as the wisdom of time and maturation in faith changes and prepares us for spiritual warfare.


I would like to extend thanksgiving to my supportive family, kinfolk, and church fam, you've redefined the importance of community through spiritual battles and the understanding that my art is an active participant in the battlefront.
