Can you see my disguise?
Most of my imagery stems from art history, antiquities, found images, popular culture and meme references. Often using recurrent motifs and characters which mutate and morph, adding layers to my own personal mythology. The experiences which I carry with me often subconsciously feed into my work when in my most receptive state in the studio, although I am not making direct portrayals of situations that have happened to me, I find making art is a way of processing circumstances affecting me currently or from past experiences. I am becoming more aware of my own uncertainty about my racial heritage and identity which has led to characters peering out of other entities and merging with one another.
