Products of capitalism, influenced by Freudian ideas and saturated in media, we are a culture of individuals. I reflect such individualism- the unending search for identity, self-understanding, self-worth, self-purpose and self-gain.
Therefore, identity has become a common theme in my writing and art. Not solely constructed around the idea of self-struggle, but simply because there is a contestant reaffirmation to search and to grow within one’s self. As circumstances constantly change, as your age increases, there is always something new to achieve, to apprehend.
Culturally driven, I surrender to the impulses of my time. Embracing the limitations and circumstances, I wish to understand. That is, to understand myself as an individual as well as myself within the larger cultural context of individuals.
Thanks for reading…Bc WHY NOT?
