Shadow of my former self


Painting, Photography, Sculpture, Performance




Schwartz Gallery, London / Vogue Fabrics Dalston

Shadow of my Former Self is a meditation on the role physical clothing plays in shaping our image and what it means to individual identity when these items are rejected and left behind— effectively marking the death of the former self. The performative work explores materiality, alternate realities, mediation and the expanded field of painting.

Across the work, there is a reference to the ephemeral and transformative — aspects critical both to traditional portraiture and still life painting. And whilst compositions have a classic quality, reminiscent of a formal sitting or setting, they are the product of a spontaneous, dynamic process wherein both the being and object are in a state of metamorphosis or flux.
