Me my own muse
As an artist I struggle to produce work that I am not in it.
Recently I was working on a short video about belonging. Consciously I decided to distance myself from the work. However, no matter how hard I tried the narrative I was trying to convey was becoming difficult.
I am sure I am not the first nor last to relay upon self representation in ones work. To mention only a few – Cindy Sherman, Farida Kahlo, Ana Mendieta. One thing that unify these artists is they all explore the concept of identity in their work.
The problem with been reliant on this method of working is – one can never see the difference between how one feels, sees themselves and how they are perceived.
