Monster Factory (2020)

Cloud Crusher | Hopkins Hall Gallery | Columbus, OH | April 2020

The COVID-19 outbreak transformed behemoth aspirations into fun-sized monstrosities. Combining the ‘feminine’ art of embroidery with a bubbling mass of plush and illustration, lines between ‘natural’ and ‘person-made’ become entangled. Just as I amalgamate myself with men's boxers, sultry lip gloss, and a soon-to-be-stitched chest, my beasts are born as tethered smatterings of gendered language, material, and imagery. They grow and combine and overtake one another, dripping off their framing.  Consider: Should we become the monster they claim us to be?

  My work asks, why not?
