 I produce paintings, videos, and performances that explore cultural identity and the politics of memory. Recently, in the series Testify! I paint portraits of publicly recognized survivors of sexual violence in the act of testifying to their experiences. As a survivor of childhood sexual abuse, I hope to construct a sense of solidarity and community among sexual violence survivors through the use of speculative nonlinear narratives that are part documentation and part call to action.
