Just like mom, 2022 Acrylic & oil paint on canvas panels

I see my current work as my visual exploration of the application of cosmetics on young children. The use of vibrant and saturated colours bring the clown-esque aspect to the actions depicted and most pieces leave the viewer uncertain of who’s applying the makeup on the toddler looking figures. I like to think that in light of my community being situated in the art world, in the film and beauty industry and in education, the public I’ve been showing my work to brings multiple feedback and point of views on their relationship to cosmetics and identity.
