Identity is a recurring theme that I explore in my work. In my earlier work I explored the idea of identity through an object: a passport. It became clear that not only nationality can mark our identity, but there are numerous markers that provide us with this sense of belonging. As my work has evolved I have been observing how cultural identity marks us as individuals. I say observe because it comes from experiencing different cultures and making “observations” of what I experience. I seek to comment and interpret these images that I have gathered through my travels.
The following pictures are only details of the actual pieces. I will be posting the finished work after the Obsession exhibit with Axcess Art held in New York City on March 21st, 2015.
