a [note] on keeping up
First inspired by Marcel Dzamas untitled drawing from the 90’s, A Note on keeping up Appearances, is a contemplation on “happy culture” and the many internal hoops we adopt and jump through in order to maintain a public persona. It feels at most times it is a tiresome act of juggling faces - an ongoing performance that we take part in as shown in Decisions; what face will you put on today?
Separation is a construct is a reminder that it is impossible to separate self from, well, self. The works are an invitation to be romanced by the chance to be misunderstood or maybe, re-understood.
A place for imagining a new version of yourself free from the constructed and unrealistic ideas of being.
