Reflections of Self

Gallery 310. March 9th – 14th, 2020

Surfaces Showcasing the various shapes and forms of the human figure through self-portraiture – an honest exploration, reflection and presentation of the relationship I have with my body and part of my ongoing journey of self-acceptance. By confronting my dislikes, I’ve created a series of abstract art that presents my body in a different and more positive light.

 

 

 

The Death of a Love Inspired by structualist art – a visual representation of a relationship in its entirety and subsequent emotional impact. I present myself and the things I feel within, metaphorically, in the form of roses and weather elements. Through careful placement of the subjects, the viewer is taken on an emotional roller coaster ride of literal and figurative ups and downs. The lesson I learned; in love and life there are no endings, only new beginnings. In each situation – even death – there is always a silver lining. After all, a pheonix will always rise from its ashes.
