"Through the layering of self-portraits with internet found images of volcanic activities, I draw metaphorical parallels between the Earth’s eruptions and the complex emotions I was feeling at the time. Within my work, through an autobiographical scope, I am always interested in exploring parallels between aspects of human emotions and larger scale phenomenon such as geological activities. You can see obvious similarities between the exploitation of the earth and the exploitation of women."n.”
