My inspiration lies in our modern concept of persona—a fluid entity shaped by social interactions and the ever-evolving dynamics of our lives. As we get older, I observe how we develop and refine our persona in various facets of life.
The canvas for my exploration is the bathroom, a sanctuary where our truest selves emerge. In this intimate space, I delve into the profound concept of "private thought," seeking to capture the tranquility that arises in moments of solitude. Each stroke aims to foster a sense of relief.
The series, "Woman in the Bath," originating as a self-portrait, transforms into a broader reflection on identity. The androgynous figures within private spaces transcend traditional gender norms, providing a universal backdrop for introspection. Delicate flowers, veiled in a clear translucent liquid, symbolize the persona—fragile, beautiful, and revealing the concealed essence of self.
My ultimate goal is to evoke a collective sigh, a relatable sense of relief for viewers encountering the raw authenticity of private thoughts.
