About The Artwork

The image is a personal investigation into the meanings within nostalgia, and how it can be seen as a spectacle. The weight of nostalgia and childhood melancholia is implied in the two central figures, where one carries the other, quite comfortably, as if owning up to their mode of existence. While commenting on the way we fetishise animals and nature into a mere spectacle, the dystopian mise-en-scene of a playground is also reminiscent of a vague adolescent memory.

My work explores the figuration of femininity through the lens of otherness, mythology, and historical forms of fiction. By depicting mundane acts within uncanny spaces, I enjoy creating renderings of intimacies like comfort, desire, awkwardness or, at times, solitude. I employ mediums such as painting, drawing, and printmaking to build narratives suggesting a form of storytelling that questions how women grapple with the I and the Other; the inside and the outside; the subject and the object. Observational and experimental drawings, writing, digital collages and photography are all a significant part of my process. In the past couple of years the act of drawing has emerged as the central point of research for my artistic practice. I have continued to explore the process of mark-making through various mediums, the most recent being printmaking.
