MA work

In search of lost parts of my childhood, I endeavour to think outside of the reality I was socialised into and create a new one with my parents and self. Through this I reference the discovery of my individuality and question the distance between us, between adult and child, love and resentment, expressed and reserved, real and fake, in an attempt to revive my unconditioned, uninhibited self. Striving to escape my closing adult mind, photomontage, the cartoonesque and the performative allow me to escape the normal, and question my beliefs, to recapture childhood nature through my cultured adult eyes.
