WOMB is an experiential performance art piece dealing with the concept of timeless pure form and its manipulation. When a point of nothingness and everything occurs and end becomes beginning. WOMB is a created space free from the expectation, judgement, and time of the outside world . Before we enter into the world, society has already begun to place expectation and formation of identity, through acts of ritualization. We are given a names, defined by gender colors and clothing for example - but what if we were to relive this space, living and creating in an absence of identity and time. What if we were given a moment to return to the WOMB? For four days I was returned to a state of purity. Only surviving and interacting on what was brought inside the womb. Film, photography, installation and paintings were produced from this experience, ending in the "birth" of a show.

This series of drawings was intended to examine the absence of identity through the deconstruction of image, line, and form, based off of pop culture and iconic silhouettes. The intent of the initial image wants us to see one thing and as a viewer we feel another through the absence and in refection we may see of ourselves. I wanted to alter the process by allowing the viewers reflection to occur between the figurative and abstract reference of the image.
