Addressing rituals and intimate enactments of queer desire, my practice sits at the intersection of various modes of making that marry my horny proclivities with my idiosyncratic sculptural lexicon. Reveling in the absurdity and tenderness of this collision, I am interested in how materials might be used to think through social and sexual encounters. My research project, The Submissive Sculpture, explores how the psychological states I experience as a ‘submissive’ in BDSM practices might shape studio methods for creating new sculptural works. The outcome is a series of performative actions that fuse a certain erotic order onto my practice. Filtered through a pop aesthetic, the works act as a conduit through which erotic narratives can be encountered and recalibrated.
