Of this series, Modern Dandy, she writes, ‘Beautiful men and handsome women interest me. I am struck by the complexity of holding disparate polarities. Strict codes of gender are often taken for granted leaving all of us at various points in our lives policed for over stepping an unstated boundary. In my work, I seek to aestheticize this space of in-between– where gender overlaps. This series is my latest project in an ongoing exploration’.
