Statement about AOAP Submitted Artwork   

 

Within my practice, I am dealing pictorially with the consequences of conflicts in differing emotions or values to others. Therefore, triggers or frustrations made by conflicts often take a huge role in my paintings. It is a starting point to access my unconscious and from there on, images are worked upon and refined. The erotically charged images serve as a stressor; and can additionally serve as an opportunity for one to view in various perspectives and differing angles. Although all aspects of my paintings including the pose, the structure and appearance of the body are undesigned, this conflicted ambivalence of the ‘body image’ sparks my interest and motivation in creating my work.
