The Index (Body)

Flocked crushed wool, wood, foam, and paint

18’x16’ 2019

These are the shapes I use to form compositions in my prints. I reimagine the queer body by using this index that forms a figure. The index collapses the body into a language of shapes, which may suggest a nose, hair, or hand. Though this index does create a vocabulary of the figure, the shapes never truly fit together or apart. The deconstructed body forms a utopic opportunity to be ever changing and evolving. The fragmented bodily shapes individually, suggest a limb but also refer to real and imagined sexual toys.
