“When I take a photo of myself, I see a mirror reflection; the camera doesn’t lie. The irony, however, is this reflection occurs only as one realizes the photo is an abstract representation of the greater Self”
Blood of My Blood
“Blood of My Blood” is a mixed media series that was created in part with my menses. In January 2019 I started this process as a way to look at sexual violence against women and the sacred feminine. So much of what a woman will experience throughout her lifetime is the loss of body sovereignty. Her person is subjugated through current politics, socialization, religious propaganda, the list seems endless. I think this work is relevant more now than ever in light of the Supreme Court’s decision to overturn Roe v Wade.
