‘Hide and ‘Seek’

My work tends to concentrate on the various ways in which we perceive violence and war within this contemporary world we now live in. Through my use of Medias such as, Photography, painting and installation, I sought to question, as a viewer, our understanding of war and its realities.
As my concept has progressed, I’ve begun playing with the idea of fabricating identities and simultaneously expected environments in relation to particular cultures, gender etc. I’ve played with these notions through the use of projection; whereby what you think you see in my work on first glance and what’s actually present may require one to look more closely.
And so I’ve created work that fabricates the above in an effort to establish this feeling of ‘Hiding’ and ‘seeking’.
