Jaq Spooky is a trans woman with an interest in monstrosity and sexuality. The art she creates comes from her experience of possessing a body that is maligned and weaponised by a society that has a destructive agenda that seeks to control and prescribe people's behaviours based on a fundamentalist idea of human nature. Her work explores this and attempts to find catharsis through imagery that she finds uncomfortable or painful.
She has been homeless, attacked by the police, attacked by men in the street and she has also been loved and cared for by many wonderful sapphics and lesbians over the course of her life. She hopes that the complexity of these experiences, both the bad and the good are communicated through what she's created.
