As human beings, we are in a constant state of flux. Our perception of our own selves keeps changing in varying degrees in accordance to both internal and external factors. Such factors may range from a change in our own temperament to a change in the environment that we inhabit. Our portraits are dynamic and continually transforming.
My works are, in many ways, self-portraits that capture my own perception of the self in different points of time and in different environments. The self-portraits are construed using commonplace artifacts – objects of daily life; objects that have a universal identity; objects that also share a personal history. The objects we use go on, to a certain extent to define us; we leave a part of ourselves in the objects that we interact with on a daily basis. Objects then become ancillary components of our memories, they become catalysts of nostalgia, reminiscence and remembrance.
The works embody a certain temporality reiterating the impermanence of the fleeting perceptions of the self at different points in time and in different environmental settings.
