Institutional and individual prejudices have become normalized, idealized, and redefined as patriotism. These aggressions have grown to be widespread and extreme while lives and liberties have been eroded and destroyed.
My artwork is a reflection of these experiences as a queer, feminist activist, a cultural Jew but practicing Atheist, a visual artist, and a psychotherapist. It examines the social conditions that undermine our individual agency: violence, oppression, exploitation. The realities of sexual and physical abuse, sexism, racism, transphobia, and xenophobia are exposed with bold, colorful brushstrokes on large-scale canvases.
My paintings leave no room for interpretation. They are a shameless call to action. The truth is hard to avoid when you are forced to confront it.
