What Once Was Will Never Be...

For me, the concept of not being white enough comes from self-projected, self-critical, defensive and assumptive ideas, based on observations that contribute to stereotypes about how white men view women of color. The white man as a persona functions as another important, yet undefined (even unseen) character in my work, representing my personal desire and “his” perceived fetish for what is exotic or different: To him my“race” signifies ignorance, hyper- sexuality and disposability.
