Peter Cochrane

Artist Statement Submitted 2018

Exploring queer identity and the construct of time through self-portraiture and sculptural installation is my catalyst. I use that which may be calming and safe to look upon as a tool to advance difficult discussions on death, fear, desire, trauma, and recovery. Heritage is given to each person and manufactured for each thing—the intersection of the two is where I create new stories. I am a student of objects looking to unveil histories and to connect with a broader lineage in order to establish my own. I aim to peel back my layers of memory and flesh to connect with you through the collective unconscious.
