Interwoven, Espoo Museum of Modern Art, Finland
I have been invited to show my work 'I Am Me' as part of the 'Interwoven' exhibition which runs from 5 June to 1 March 2020 - EMMA - Espoo Museum of Modern Art, Finland. This work, made up of 12 self-portraits, is inspired by the humankind’s urge to categorize. Whoever you think you see in these images the person portrayed remains the same throughout. It is me and the viewer is asked to form their own opinion of who I really am. Individuality, distinctiveness, uniqueness form our identity; who or what we are. Visual decoration or types of clothing may suggest class, culture, creed, religion or ethnicity. The outer shell and its various wrappings; skin, clothing, accessories, may alter and transform my appearance as they change.
