Define Yourself

We would not usually define ourselves through lost loved ones, addictions or health issues we have faced yet these are pivotal influential factors that shape our character. To demonstrate that experiences form the layers of our multidimensional dispositions, I have juxtaposed the simplistic mark-making of the left panel and the hyperrealism of the right. My aim is to provoke new definitions of self that don't disregard the despair we have faced, but rather acknowledge it. Take time to reflect and familiarise yourself with your worst experiences; understand the power they hold but don't let them consume you.


ARTEXPRESS is a joint venture of the NSW Department of Education and the Board of Studies Teaching and Educational Standards NSW, hosted by Hazelhurst Regional Gallery & Arts Centre.
