Desire

Color inkjet prints 30”x 20”
Tattoos are our second skin, a visual reminder of the inward challenges, victories and stories that binds us as a community.

They mark our progress and manifest our desire. The pain of the tattoo needle is a kin to the growing pains of a community that transforms the norms of gender and sexuality.

Desire is a visceral emotion. Hands stretch skin, inching rhythmically across the body. Needles rise and fall ink is pushed under, leaving permanent markings. These markings are the residue of desire.

My abstract prints of the tattoo process are created from viewing hours of video footage and creating video stills, (a pause in motion.)
