Artist statement: The ideas I explored in my studio process are based on the theme of concealing and revealing identity. This theme interests me as I have always felt self-conscious expressing who I am, and have always suppressed aspects of my identity to conform to social expectations, including my sexuality, feelings and aspects of my personality that I have always found considerably unique. Inspired by contemporary artist Gerwyn Davies, this artwork uses objects resembling masks and face coverings to metaphorically represent the idea of concealing aspects of identity. I used a range of paper techniques as I felt the texture and fragility of paper were effective in emphasising how delicate and impermanent the act of concealing identity is.
