If you follow me on Instagram, you may be aware that I am currently working on a new and very personal project at the moment. A project where for the first time, I am the subject. Mixed Media Manifestations of Me is a personal response to having a long-existing urge to create a mixed-media series from scratch. My previous mixed-media artworks are almost always inspired by the initial photography that I am to work with. However, most of these images are given to me by the photographer or the client. This time, I give myself the opportunity to be in control of the entire process from the very beginning and what better way than to use my own body as my inspiration?
Here are a few WIP images from my Instagram account where I am primarily documenting the steadied development of this self-portrait project. You can follow my IG account to stay up-to-date with the progress of Mixed Media Manifestations of Me.
