"I utilize clay as a canvas positioning my drawings, paintings, and photographs onto the surface to create sculptural figures recontextualizing female perspectives of ancient myth and legend into personal narratives. The figures are simultaneously revealed and veiled. Narratives and stories, tropes, hidden images, and secrets highlight the ongoing behavior of dismissing female identity and perspective while at the same time celebrating the bountiful history and power of the feminine."

"Thank you for putting together your vision, bringing such fantastic
people together and for now adding to my home with such a fantastic
piece, for which I am very grateful!"

"Before Subject Matter I would never have thought about being an
art-buyer. It felt like a world I didn't understand and didn't belong
in. You have opened my eyes!"

Cheryl | London
