My current work is a documentary self-portrait as I go through my first pregnancy, childbirth, breastfeeding, and postpartum. The multidisciplinary installation consisting of video, glass, and breastmilk sculpture, as well as painting, is a direct cry of motherhood pride and fragility. In my practice I dissect, peel, slice, unveil and reorganize extreme experiences to help me process their impacts. Intersection between tradition and appropriation, idealization and realism as well as between the grant and the mundane have been ongoing themes that I explore.
