Doll Parts Series
Prisma on Paper

2019 - present

Doll parts are derived from personal experience. As a kid, I use to have a ton of toys action figures.  I particularly collected all the weapon-heavy, tough, hyper-masculine figures Chuck Norris, Marvel, Wrestling, Gi Joe.  The black figures never seemed as cool though, and I never saw myself reflected so I would take them apart and try and create my own with toy body parts.

The gestures they made I found interest in.  A saluting hand, a fist, a screaming head these things change in context.  The re-contextualizing of black body parts  Makes reference to still life, portraiture as well as repeated codes of hyper-masculinity and violence."
