Up and Out
About the Artist
I have autism. I see the world very differently, and people tend to ignore me because of my disability. With my art, I capture my reflection in everyday scenarios. My autism can be a barrier for me, and when I capture my reflection in a window, the glass also acts as a barrier. In my artwork, I live in the glass. By capturing my image, I’m reinventing myself in a way that the outside world cannot ignore me anymore. By looking at my work, I am present in their world. Being present is what motivates me to create.
