‘WORTHY’ Featured in Art Vancouver 2018, Ignite Your Voice - Vancouver Convention Centre

This piece represents the commodification of diminished self worth; instilling belief patterns that are damaging and unrepresentative of reality. Existing in a world of ‘not enough’, has lead to increased anxiety and depressive disorders, a culture of unfulfilled self hating cogs in machines. Igniting our voices, one by one, towards instilling beliefs that include diversity in all facets and relinquishing unrealistic standards of beauty is integral for our survival. As a mixed race model of colour, this piece represents the experiences I have endured and witnessed in the fashion industry from 2004 - 2018. Bold Black strokes embody our presence on white canvases.
