“Lolita, light of my life, fire of my loins. My sin, my soul. Lo-lee-ta: the tip of the tongue taking a trip of three steps down the palate to tap, at three, on the teeth. Lo. Lee. Ta. She was lo, plain lo, in the morning, standing four feet ten in one sock. She was lola in slacks. She was dolly at school. She was dolores on the dotted line. But in my arms, she was always lolita.”Vladimir Nablokov, Lolita, 1955
My work explores the boundaries between makeup, art, femininity, and intimacy. By using myself as a canvas physically and theoretically, i create a sense of intimacy that forces my audience to view the world as i want them to. As for now, i am researching how girls are considered within the world, with my own experience as a girl in this world as the starting point. My work forms in a circular process, meaning that that theory, making, and reflection keep on following each other, which allows me to work in a non-linear way. By using non-traditional materials like candy, makeup and slime, i try to create a visual identity that represents my sense of girliness.
