Oil on plastic
My work depicts the feeling of entrapment that inevitably arises through living in a society driven by the hunger for ideals. It expresses how you either put yourself in a box by means of isolation, or you are put into a box in accordance with your characteristics and the beliefs of the society in which you live. The subjects in my work are placed in take-away containers to emphasise these generic and artificial qualities of society as well as to highlight the ‘hunger’ associated with placing people in ‘boxes’.
