The Walk, Acrylic & Ink on Plasterboard, Samantha Humphreys (2016)

This piece is a narrative from memories of my Grandma combining both early and latter recollections.

Selfie

 

 

I have been investigating the trend in our culture today which requires us to be photo ready and the self obsession this brings with it. Perceived realities are getting somewhat confused with the realities we are likely to experience, as society is influenced by and taking inspiration from sources such as celebrity culture and reality television instead of learning to be true to themselves.
My selfie represents a moment of reflection, breath of reality,  a rare half a second of solitude in a society in which we are put under constant pressure to be perfect.

The second part of a series of works I am experimenting with, placing my belongings from a time when I felt secure, in places where I felt most uncomfortable.
