Multi-faceted elements. An ability to shift and change. Metamorphosis. Human beings are in a constant flux of fluidity and ever-changing emotions, experiences, situations, ideals, personas and interests.
’A Sense of Being’ is a representation and reflection on this constantly evolving and ever-changing state of being. In today's fast paced society, there is a constant need and want to tailor our lives, interests and lifestyle, as well as the perception of perfection, when the reality of situations can be far from this.
Picking or selecting 'elements' of society to 'build' or ‘construct’ ourselves is a very interesting notion. ‘A Sense of Being’ does not oppose this fluidity and movement, but merely draws attention to it.
There is a sense of child-like playfulness about the pieces, and through the use of finely detailed textures and elements the viewer is hopefully drawn in to inspect the works on a more intimate level.
