“it’s she but the s is silent”
TC Tolbert, Territories of Folding
My work comes from a very personal place. It is about growing up a southern girl and becoming a transmasculine person in the west. My trans life doesn’t just revolve around issues of gender identity and body, but of family, connection, spirituality and truth. The works on this site touch on all of these and wrestle with the notions of attachment and disconnect, revealing and privacy, hope and regret.
Currently, my work is exploring the connections between the visual and memory and healing.
