From her artist’s statement:
“In my work, applying and wearing gold suggests a struggle between the unrefined body and the desire for perfection. The body endures pain in an attempt to recast itself, through the wearing of the intrusive gold adornment. The bodily configurations appear absurd and require physical restraint twitching,wincing, or swallowing. The contortions caused by the grotesque adornment counter the display of gold as perfection.”
