People believe in certain ways, predetermined manners often according to pre-described norms of society. Anything counter to this is normally punished whereas “normalcy” is encouraged and rewarded.
In this series the strait jacket is a metaphor that explores boundaries, the idea of boundaries (social and self) and imposed system of thought. The works delve into how we are anchored by social conditioning and expectation, always bound at the expense of what we desire. In this series the body of work is a reflection of the outward expression of our inner and intimate existence. The figures in these works explore the duality of the state of being and the natural intrinsic state of fulfilment and happiness.
