BA (Hons) Fine Art | Class of 2020

Preferring the medium of aerosols, this body of work in particular focuses on the subject of animals, moreover, the way we as humans interact with and treat them. At the core of my paintings, I hope to capture the beauty of each individual portrait, aiming to tackle critical points of social, political and cultural issues.

Each image intends to analyse the life of an individual animal, reflecting a different issue at hand. Inadvertently searching for deeper meaning employed by subtle undertones.
It is of my view that all life is precious and I strive to capture this through my work; by questioning our role as caretakers on this planet, in charge of other species. Animals bring out the best and worst in us, some of them have permanent roles in our lives through domestication, but not are all are free and treated equally.
