Belly, series

2019, synthetics and silicone.


Form and deformity, the Belly series confronts fatness through material and process. Each piece is stuffed full, then tucked and pulled tight to find its contour. The work strips power from terms like health and beauty, and it asks the viewer to be present with what is and not what should be.

The Belly series explored content and material to inform larger works Summer Body, Life as a Six, and Fat Talk.
