A rose is a rose is a rose till it burns
EXHIBITION PROJECT 2024
With this body of work, I wish to give my internalised male gaze space. From too early an age, I became aware of a different way of looking, and with that being looked at, it proved to be the first of many. Over the years I grew to attach value to how I was being perceived and started catering to it. Conditioned to seek validation, now this voyeur has grown part of me, my never-leaving companion, my foe and friend. Through numerous self-portraits, I showcase my relationship with my inner spectator, acting as both maker, muse and audience.
