Artwork Description

Need to know: this original artwork requires framing.

My corrugated portraits speak to themes of the fragile nature of existence and transience.

The selection of portraits are mostly of the current generation at an age where they are expected to be entering the working world; some thriving, but, most merely surviving in the current social climate. We may live in a globalized, digitized era, with everything at our figure tips, but ‘making it’ in the world today is far harder than it has ever been.

An example of this is seen in the online shopping business, something that the current generation is abundantly familiar with. Packages delivered to our door from anywhere in the world, makes convenience a normality. But with this convenience comes great loss, loss of social interaction, loss of jobs, and growth of consumerism.

The portraits are created out of the very same packaging material used in deliveries, such as corrugated cardboard, packaging tape and fragile stickers. These
