I am interested in exploring the different ways people value physical and emotional labor, and I specifically focus on the liminal space one may encounter while trying to navigate cultural and social identity. To live a hyphenated-identity is to live in the in-between spaces of existence, always seeking harmony within oneself. The intention of a hyphen is to join, and yet, often times it can represent a barrier between polarized worlds. Within this context, I associate the hyphen with the notion of liminality; the line acts as a physical representation of the emotional space traversed between multiple, cultural selves. While I often gain inspiration from my own experiences within the greater Greek diaspora of North America, I try to create works that speak to notions of unease and belonging that are universally accessible.
