My public installations often include these stylized roses, with center circles similar to suns or moons (or portals) that materialize in soft, warm tones harmoniously organized in distinctly confined pools of color. I rarely plan them out beforehand, instead I prefer to free-hand sketch them onto the surface and let them materialize in their own growth patterns. It becomes a moment of connection with space and my body and in a way I am creating a moment where masculine and feminine energies ebb and flow and fuse into something unique. Everything is queer and free and beautiful.
