“From CyberSpace to CyberCafe” was art exhibition showing a set of drawings I created after graduation. In these drawings I wanted to further question the identity and it’s representation in art. This time my goal was to explore how perceptions of identity, race and relationships change when seen through various cultural “lenses.” All portraits and self-portraits were drawn from different digital photographs.
One of 12 drawings from my M.A. art thesis “brokenFixed.” You can read the philosophical part of the thesis here.
The second version of “Broken” and “Fixed” self-portraits I created as a part of my graduate art research. These two paintings are the creative bridge between my first self-portraits and the ink drawings I created for my m.a. art exhibition. I intentionally departed from the traditional representation of likeness in a search for a more abstract representation of a self.
Double portrait about racial identity.
