Christmas Portrait 2009

During the Christmas holidays our project was to create a self portrait. It could be a sculpture/ installation/ painting – the medium was our choice. In my portrait I wanted to convey my background and the way I have pieced my life together. This is why I have chosen to paint on an actual puzzle. By ‘piecing my life together’ I mean my change from being in a low horrible place in my life and into the light. Coming from a place a hated to a place I am happy in, thus, finding my feet. Looking forward to the future and getting back to normal.Even the choice in puzzle reflects my background – diving. I started diving at the age of four under my dad’s arm and continue to this day.

The cut-out at the bottom of the painting is inspired by my past, where I used to live, in Brunei.

Sightedness and Drawing

I’ve never done figure drawing so his was all new to me! However, I think we all know it’s an amazing way to put expression into your work. I experimented with line, colour, tone and different mediums. Hope you like them 🙂
