My artwork entails a process of self-discovery; a series of confessionals revealing private conflicts; hoping towards catharsis. Through this cathartic process, I hope to depathologize negative feelings so that they can be seen as a source for political action rather than its antithesis. I expose mental health issues like depression, dysmorphia, food addition, and loneliness: describing their mechanisms, scrutinizing their origins, and illuminating the impossibility of fixing them.

Hunter MFA

This spring, the Hunter College MFA Program in Studio Art will graduate 26 artists who completed their degree over the challenging months of the COVID-19 pandemic. These talented MFA Thesis Candidates are exhibiting their work in six group exhibitions at 205 Hudson, in addition to this online spotlight hosted by Hauser & Wirth. At time when the public audience for in-person exhibitions has been limited by the pandemic, we are excited to provide this digital platform to the emerging artists from Hunter College’s MFA Program in Studio Art.
