Curated Space

A selection of multi-media work from the Pop My Mind community themed on the SELF PORTRAIT: how artists reflect upon their own lives and identities through their unique mediums. Curated by Karis Lambert.

Image created on the scanner, layered paint, make up. NO EYES, NO SOUL TO LOOK AT. Digital soul, representation of my own identity on the social media.

Self Portrait
This piece is hopefully going to be the start of a series of portraits using water as the main element in each painting. Water to me is healing, in the past I've painted a portrait of my hands and another self portrait where water is present.

Fragile Tower Animation
I was attracted to Sam's still image, as there appears to be a clear narrative there already. I wanted to animate the image and create some kind of accompanying audio, but thought I'd show off the moving image, as is, before working on the audio.
