People believe in certain manners, predetermined conduct often according to pre-described behavioural norms of society. Anything counter to this is normally punished whereas “normalcy” is encouraged and rewarded.
In this series the straitjacket is a metaphor that explores boundaries, the idea of boundaries (social and self) and an imposed system of thought. The works delve into how we are anchored by social conditioning and expectation, always bound at the expense of what we desire. In this series the body of work is a reflection of the outward expression of our inner and intimate existence. The figures in these works explore the duality of the state of being and the natural intrinsic state of fulfilment and happiness.
