Promotional poster for Animunculi. With lineart in a deep, muted rainbow, we see the artist as an embroidered character, grotesque breast monster, as a running comic character, and a glimpse of their IRL self, with short hair and aviator glasses.
Installation photo of a white-walled gallery painted with comic dots and movement marks. To the left we see a wall playing an animation with the show title painted on the wall. To the right we see a restroom with the artist's name painted to the right, a long crochet rainbow, and embroidery blocks with black comic panels painted behind them. In the center of a room stands a pedestal with paintings, comics, and postcards for sale from the artist. Alternative angle showing the embroidery panels alongside three paintings with melting panels painted in the background, spilling into a penis-shaped sculpture on the right wall. The projector faces the viewer, creating a blue lens flare.

Bits, and bobbles, and bodies- oh my! Join us in the revelry of Animunculi, a multi-media cartoon installation exploring the euphoria of queer identiy. Transforming my avatar across sculpture, textile, and moving image, this body exudes motion, momentum, and metamorphosis. With the joy of body modification more prevalent and accessible than ever before, this work asks, what is so monstrous about transition? Entering this installation, I urge viewers to let go of ideas about what a body should be, and consider the joy of possibility embodied in queer identity.

Solo exhibition installed at Blockfort Gallery. Columbus, OH (October 2022)

The cartoons show the same short-haired trans character in various situations, including their breasts being cut off and a squirting vagina protruding from their face.

Four eyeball figures in lime green and navy blue walk across a neon orange background, diagonally, in the rhythm of Abbey Road. Each eye is gyrating and morphing with different body parts protruding from them. Detail shot of 'Every Angel is Horror'. Neon light blue angels with orange eyes and lime green highlights morph together across the panel in the style of an animation blur. Group shot of three soft sculptures. The first is a large penis-like form with blue Louis Vuitton ribbons as veins and an embroidered cartoon face. The second is a white and black bowling pin shaped figure with crying cartoon eyes, with ropes of braided panties flowing in and out of it. The last is a small cute purple creature with button eyes, a beaver tail, and bedazzled embellishments. Closeup shot of 'Phallacy'. Looking down the sculpture, you see peach coloured ribs of linen forming a penis head and shaft. At the bottom are embroidered herpes at the base of the shaft. A white satin tush tag reads 'YOU ARE NOT IMMUNE TO PENIS ENVY'. The mural behind the sculpture features black ink drops, showing the penis ejaculating. Closeup shot of 'Penetrated'. The cartoon form is made of textured medical fabric and a black velvet outline. The figure cries and slumps over as the heavy braid of panties goes in and out of the sculpture.
