Artist Statement
Do Not Touch Your Face With Those Ruined Hands was made because of, for, and during the worldwide period of isolation of the last year. I've spent this time revisiting my Catholic upbringing, and investigating the residual comfort and shame it has caused. This project is a virtual diptych, exploring traditionally feminine crafts and sanctifying them through the creative and destructive processes. Do Not Touch Your Face With Those Ruined Hands is a tribute to the female saints and mystics of the Catholic Church who destroyed their bodies in the process of becoming venerated; who committed extreme acts of asceticism to become closer to god. The specificity of the viewing experience enshrines the project as an installation based piece for a separated post-covid world.
