This series consists mainly of portraits. Utilising a distinctive approach to this tradition, these works visually explore themes relating to the deconstruction and fragmentation of identity. Through a process of drawing on conventions of both, figurative and abstract painting, the works attempt to visually dissect the subject matter in the pursuit of an understanding of the dynamics and transient nature of the 21st century psyche.
They are intended to evoke discussion on the idea of personal identity as a series of disjointed concepts in a continuous state of flux.
