Temperance, 2022—2023
[Completed at the four month mark of my sobriety]

30” x 44”
Ink on Rives BFK Paper

Somewhere in the middle of the first summer of the pandemic, I decided that every year I’d create a self-portrait as a means of both logging my experiences and pushing the limits of my dexterity.

What started as a casual exercise has now turned into something that’s forced me to look at myself more deeply. My self-portraits have become a practice and a means of self-discovery, and over the years I’ve come to know myself more through the ways in which I portray myself.

My work explores eroticism, identity and the parts of ourselves that we either highlight or obscure for the sake of social acceptance. What does it mean to be experienced as an object of desire? How do we represent ourselves as authentic beings while simultaneously projecting and reflecting particular facets of ourselves in order to navigate through the world with a level of safety? Where is the line between our personal power and delusion?
