'New World Orphan'
Talking about my work is something i struggle with so here goes.
I have been working with this Imagry for a while now . Specifically the format of busts. There is a sense of power that comes from such an inherently classical greek format. I wanted to depict an orphan of war, depicted stylistically but rooted in this classical context.
These days terrorism, and american wars waged in the middle east and all over the world have become normalised. Destabilization and manipulation of grief to further an agenda. Our dependence of fossil fuel. InequalIty. I want to face these cruel norms and also give light to how we see ourselves in this new world. How do we as young caregivers of this planet heel. How do we do less evil lol and focus more on ~ good ~ where do we stand as "Canadians" and how can we support? What is OUR role.
I feel very privileged to be able to use my voice in such a highly visible and extremely busy part of Toronto.
