“Beauty and Ugliness”
The works explore human existentialism, our capacity for consciousness, self awareness and ability to overcome external controls on behavior. Extrapolating from this, the concept of this exhibition is to invoke the notion of self through the perception of the other, exploring themes about the shifting nature of human beings and our inherent ability to transform. The works offer an insight into the eternal quest to understand our realities. The face as the final layer gives something recognizable to the viewer, a point of clear identification to look beyond the surface through the exposure of their hidden stories. Beauty and ugliness explores the dualities of the human being a reflection about our humanity, the inner being and ultimately our intimate existence.
