Self-Portrait

i.a portrait that an artist produces of themselves.

The process and conception of each of these pieces provided me a mean to come into acceptance with a much younger self that once stood.

Integral  in the formation of one’s identity, home is a place where much of our character and personality are shaped.

It is a place of order where one could seek respite from as opposed to the chaos of the outside world.

This place of respite however, is also a vault of secrets and unspoken words where the imageries serves as an invitation for the audience to ponder upon the ways in which place and identity intertwines in the center that we inhabits.

Based off Tetris, a fruitless quest of a gameplay where one’s only defence is repetitive meaningless sorting whilst being accurately aware of the gameplay’s eventual end.

The process that entailed in the making of the work involved the reconstruction of the artist’s deceased family members that are recreated as Tetris block to represent the time they had spent up till their sorrowful parting.

Here, the artist utilised a mechanical and laborious process of writing the day and date that marks the artist’s loss of an beloved family member over and over again where the meditative process employed here is a negotiation between the quo of “meaning” and the lack thereof part.

Equatorial grey is a series of images created based upon a narrative that the artist has conceived that serves as the continuation from its prologue reflecting themes of one’s identity and desires.

This otherwise dystopian based narrative and imagery seeks to question the whims of our desires as poor arbiters of what we truly seeks inliving as the protagonist awakes in her metaphysical world as a butterfly;

a life form with little time

left.
