My work is an exploration of the self within and versus society. My paintings depict and question the conditioning that we subconsciously carry with us and how it informs our behaviour.
Painting has always been an inward journey. It is a way for me to find a quiet moment in the daily chaos, an opportunity to use my hands outside of chores and routine, and a way to visually articulate the questions that plague my mind.
Through my art, I bring the private, the unmentionable, the unquestioned into the open and highlight the public scrutiny that's constantly present in the personal.
My works are privy to my routine, characterised by its domesticity. As such, they reflect not just my moods and struggles but also of those they cohabit with. They take on a character of their own, unbound by style. The subjects drive the visual aesthetics as well as their physical interpretation.
The ‘Trial Room’ series is clean with over-bright, retail-ey colours like a fashion store in a mall. The work used a combination of digital art and installation, providing the viewer with a hyperphysical experience.
Whereas the ‘Bad Mama’ series has childlike and free strokes to contextualise the subject and show the internal and external chaos.
