People Watched But Could Not See
2022, Acrylic, 6" x 4", 0.1kg, Physical and Online Exhibit
"In the midst of the pandemic I was struggling with the isolation and my identity. I felt that my weight, shape and gender were incongruent with who I am. I felt a dissoance from who I wanted to be. This struggle was both internal and external. I developed a very bad eating disorder in my early teens that re-emerged when I was combatting my gender disporia. This work explores my difficulties with aligning with my body and the formation of a self that is content with who I am."
