“Generally I am interested in the historical construction of feminine identity and sexuality. I am intrigued by how identities are shaped and controlled by the environments and societies we inhabit. More specifically my research explores the idea of the fallen woman and Baroque attitudes. I am interested in the dichotomies present in Baroque concerns such as religion and eroticism, sacred and profane and allegory and realism and am intrigued by the oscillation that exists between excess and decay. Investigations of rites of passage, fetish and liturgical rituals are integral concerns in my work.”
