Dolls and Identity taps into the expression of thoughts in the form of inanimate objects (anthropomorphism). I am creating a variety of works based on research and observation ranging from writings, idea drawings, paintings; exploring the subjects of identity (self image & representation), childhood - adulthood escapism, anxieties, object sentimentality, collecting as a habit, and subverting the stereotypical idea of the passive dolls. The “dolls” are situated in a non-narrative environment, the shapes are considered, the eyes are hollow, while they contemplate and confront the viewer.
