A Botanical Study

The flower is a complex symbol, with a variety of cultural, religious and artistic representations. It is a motif which has been repeatedly sexually objectified and feminised throughout art history, as we subconsciously draw similarities between the female form and the floral structure. 

 

My new project is a reflection on the metaphorical understanding of the flower and why we sexually feminise it, despite it being a both a male and female living organism.

 Lucid

Lucid is a recent project that explores living with insomnia; an attempt to understand the sleep disorder from a personal perspective whilst learning to live with it. The project depicts the dissociated and strange sensational experience of the disorder, as well as the isolating state of mentality you find yourself in.
