Welcome to andiland
My work invites viewers through the looking glass of reality down the rabbit hole of my personal female psyche, a dreamworld otherwise known as ANDiLAND. Working in several media, my campy paintings, kitschy sculptures and mischievous performance videos create a whimsical plastic wonderland of immersive sensory overloads. This avant-garde fairytale serves as a surreal funhouse mirror that reflects the superficial construct of reality and plays with the voluptuous danger lurking beneath the sticky sweet surface. I milk the excess of cute, passive, girly kitsch ephemera to playfully antagonize power dynamics and destructively challenge conventional values of art and culture industries.
With a perverse humor and a great deal of provocative pleasure, my work conjoins a grotesque hybrid of issue driven contemplation and honest reflection of my own personal experiences. By presenting femininity in an overtly mocking way I attempt to assault the norms of acceptable female behavior, exploiting traditional gender stereotypes to subversive ends. This staged seductive spectacle questions the aestheticization of politics and more concerningly, violence. By ambiguously swerving between parody and enactment, I investigate the collision and collusion of fantasy to form a new reality of consciousness.
