Self-identity is ambiguous, and often only the fabrication of the selfie.
The photographic element of my work explores how our pain influences the formation of self-identity. These wounds construct negative habits and patterns, illustrated by the strings. The resulting form is often complex and painful.
The second layer of the work is the object of colour; the construct of the identity that we feel at the moment.
Our true self-identity lives somewhere between that which we know and that which we do not know. It is a messy construct.
