My artwork takes a critical view on social and cultural issues. I have been using the body to illustrate the frustration and psychological matters that arise as a result of the media influence. I am interested in the body as it shows the real you, with all its so-called flaws that are exposed to the outside world, rather than being hidden under a "second skin" of clothing. My focus is on the skin and the texture that engages the audience. I have been combining ideas of beauty and abjection to create a body of work that would raise awareness towards problems such as poor body image, anxiety and adapting to social norms.
