"We make judgments based on the trappings of gender, race, age, and social context. We look for personal distinction and we value biographical information. We spend our lives building a picture in our minds about who we are.
I use painting and drawing media as a vehicle to explore ideas about perception. I reflect on the complexity and wonder of embodiment, time, space, memory, and narrative of self. I question how we exist through our senses and societal implications that affect our movement through the world." — Lacey McKinney
