Artist’s statement

The issues explored in my work revolve around the notion of the ‘self’. It deals with the identifying, exploration and consolidation of the personal world contained within the ‘self’ of an individual. Having lived through many cultures and traditions, I was knicked into anxiety upon the ‘self’ itself, and somewhat of my own. I have gone about this implementation of the ‘self’ by portraying my very own. Almost unbreakable code and symbols have sunk into the work. Life itself becomes a universal complexion. This imaginative ‘play’ around the ‘self’ is performed by my very own singular cast.
