Statement about AOAP Submitted Artwork
Illusions of Intimacy (I &II) explore the para-social relationships we fall deeper into with the proliferating access we are granted into strangers’ lives. With the millennial trend of candidness and earnestness online, we are left wondering what is truly genuine if this ‘candid’ state is being (self) recorded and (self) published. We have become our own PR specialist; marketing our traumas to aid our vanity brands. What is ‘selling out’ in a generation that has been selling our selves since the Myspace ‘About Me’ section?
