7 August-18 August 2006
For this series of work I explored the relationships of my parents, their friends as well as my own relationship. I am particularly interested in the way couples interact and behave with each other. After spending some time with them, I started to notice that sometimes they unconsciously imitate each other’s actions, developing gestures and mannerisms of one another’s personality. After witnessing their daily routines, I directed a scene that I felt captured the nature of their relationship to form a narrative. I aimed to encapsulate these couple’s cultural values that express their dreams and desires as well as their everyday routines. I have also selected particular details of interiors within their houses to reflect the psychological state of their relationship. The photographic work of Tina Barney, Diane Arbus, Anne Zahalka, Julie Mack, Martin Parr have all inspired me.

Exploring the figure through drawing
This series of works are images of my own body, the sensations I feel within my body I land onto the surface to create an autobiography exploring and expressing the internal world of my body. The drawings question line, tone or markings and how much is necessary to explore and describe the subject of the internal.
