About The Artwork

The gym is a place where everyday antics and behaviors are amplified in a stage-like environment where there is a hyperawareness of our bodies in a public space. My works tell gym stories through tender yet comically empathetic visual narratives that touch on struggle and empowerment in a different take on feminism. I want to play with the absurdity of having a rock-hard gym body by making one out of rocks. Rock Solid Bodies is series of wearable paintings made with a metalsmithing and lapidary technique called inlay, which is akin to collaging with hand-cut stones fit into sterling silver channels. This deadlifting woman is made with sterling silver pendant with 25 pieces of Number 8 turquoise, petrified palm root, petrified wood, obsidian, thunderstorm jasper, Bruneau jasper, and porcelain jasper. It also comes with a sterling silver omega chain and a custom jewelry box.

In my work, I see the gym as a place where everyday antics and behaviors are amplified in a stage-like environment where there is a hyperawareness of our bodies in a public space. Exploring the politics of looking through both male and female gazes, I’m interested in exemplifying the strangeness of the body, and the peculiarity of certain gym exercises and the awkward, compromising, sometimes sexual positions they put people in. My works hinge on the contradiction that I am an active participant of #gymlife, while also questioning its variables. By telling gym stories through serious yet comically empathetic visual narratives, my work is meant to bring up conversation about gender issues, body politics and trends, competition, the machinic-like work we do, and the propaganda of progress in other spheres of our lives.
