(un)veiling  2013  contrapposto   inkjet print, 21" x 37"    A subtle exploration of visibility, the veil, and the gaze, (un)veiling explores what it means to be veiled by your own skin. The veil object, created by peeling off hardening liquid from the body of the model and then stitched together, still retains hair and organic material from the body. Obscuring the body and the gaze of the model, and in turn, the gaze of the viewer, the veil/skin/film/trash creates a distressing barrier in the visual field. Referencing traditional beautiful sculptural poses, the poetic imagery is an indirect reference to the visibility politics of the transgender body as object.
