Lab Gallery for June/July 2021: Starly Lou Riggs
this work is a reflection of personal experience, serving as an ongoing self-examination of non-binary/genderqueer identity, what does it mean to queer a space? what does it mean to live in the space between language? what does it mean to be?
the root of my work is theatrical and cinematic: emphasizing color, image, character, vibrancy, and absurdity from photography to soft sculpture, video to installation, my goal in utilizing visual art is to convey something that language often cannot: a feeling undefined. creating dreamscapes and characters within these modes of visual media offers a way to rewrite norms, reexamine perception and reevaluate history while normalizing queer facesm spaces, and feelings.
