Mixed media on panel, 2020
I created Treat Yo Self for the 2020 Frieze LA art fair. I had a solo booth with my gallery, Vielmetter Los Angeles, titled Look At Them Look At Us, in which I presented a selection of new photographs, sculptures, and collages. I often utilize humor in my work or titles to touch on deeper issues. I was referencing Maurizio Cattelan’s Comedian and all its accompanying associations, of course, but coming at it from a personal and female perspective.
Vintage imagery functions in my work as a vehicle to place the viewer in the mindset of home and domesticity. The wallpaper here is a reference to our past and, for me, a key component to unpacking the complexities of everyday life
