My work explores the metaphysics of the mind, examining the psychology of individuals whilst presenting to the viewer the complex nature of our inner-selves. The genesis behind my work stems from a desire to analyse ones personal struggles through past traumas and psychosis. The tension between control and out of control is omnipresent in this project. Presented as a series of portraits, 'Paradoxical Past' features an isolated female figure in a variety of places reminiscing on negative past experiences. The repetition of the pattern itself is reminiscent of Victorian mental institutions. The clandestine nature of the figure's life is exaggerated by angular red tainted acetate, partially concealing our gaze.
