Visual

Art 
Influenced and inspired by People…
Visually exploring the workings of ‘Self’.

The multifaceted moments, behaviours and emotions that make a person. What are the things that make us tick?  What are the stories that we tell?

Our knowledge of ‘Self’, how we see ourselves, how we are ‘seen’ and how others perceive us. The different masks worn in private vs those worn public and how they differ…

Does the mask ever come off? What happens when it does?
