Eagle, oil and acrylic on wool, 2017
Body of the king, 2015 – 2016
This project encompasses a collection of objects and paintings made in response to the American basketball player, Lebron James, his decision to return to the Cleveland Cavaliers franchise, and the 2016 presidential primaries in Cleveland, OH. The sewn and painted objects interrogate fabric and surface producing imagined relics of clothing for the historical moment. Oscillating between the signifiers of corporal body and body politic the collection of things asks the questions: how does a leader emerge in culture and who does the body of the king belong to?
