Artist Statement:

Our identities are composed of a complex and delicate mix of our different emotions. When researching the theme of “Transparency”, I wondered about how we have different layers, and how our appearance on the surface does not always reveal the depth of feelings we might truly be experiencing. Therefore, I chose the metaphor of baking, as the mix of different contrasting ingredients could capture the diversity of our emotions. Using different acrylic sheets, I could also then explore the idea of depth on not only a conceptual level, but also both a physical and visual level. Through playing with layers of transparency, I hope to provide a better glimpse into our relationships with our emotions.
