Fuck My Body. Throw Me To The Floor. Hustle Me Around. Fuck With Me Some More.
Articles from the world of sports stand in for anatomical parts in these nude self portraits. The title of this series, is a variation of Mariah Carey's single 'Touch My Body.' I am investigating the relationship between dance and sport, masculine and feminine.
Loss of sexual innocence, masculine violence, longing and desire.
The Last of His Kind (Save Me Dracula)
In these series of works, photographs of miniature figurines manufactured to promote the 1992 film 'Bram Stoker's Dracula' surround family photos of myself at various stages of childhood.
I see the figurines representing monsters- not as a threat, but as offering protection to a young gay male in an inversion of the more conventional scenario. These monsters of a legend are resurrected with a new purpose.
Utilizing parts of tear-sheets of male and female models, I tear apart and put the images back together like puzzle pieces. I create the illusion of a whole physical body. Puzzle pieces only fit the images they are formed after. With these pieces, I am forcing them to fit together to create new identities.
