As an actor, I am less concerned with the moment of creation (the spontaneous decisions onstage or on-camera that comprise a performance) than with the creative ways those moments are prepared for. My focus is on process and experimentation. When I create a character, I am continuously rendering a portrait with my voice and body. I am mapping the uncharted territory between the character and myself.
As an artist, my practice corroborates this approach to performance. Each drawing dissects my point of view and challenges my capacity for empathy. I create new characters (in two dimensions) and they reveal themselves as double portraits: depicting the subject and myself. My visual practice expands and evolves alongside my performance practice as I play with queer spatiality, reckon with contradictory perspectives, and delineate complex forms.
