This body of work is a reflection of my experiences as a young, bisexual person transitioning into adulthood. The torsos describe my emotional life, family, and romantic relations. They are embedded with found objects that I have gathered and curated in the past months. The pieces in this feature range from five to seven inches in height. The torsos are vessels to explore the aspects of myself that I do not often acknowledge, through delicacy and tenderness. Like journal entries, the work does not seek a resolution. It exists simply to document my present concerns.
