I wanted to explore the concept of duality and identity. I decided to incorporate my own physical features, such as my double piercings above the eyebrows, to create a piece that is deeply personal and reflective of my own journey. The white background and red ink splashes symbolize the contrast between light and dark, good and evil, and the inner turmoil that often comes with navigating these opposing forces within ourselves. By showing my full face in this piece, I am revealing a more vulnerable side of myself, one that is often hidden from the world. The piercings above my eyebrows are a deliberate choice, as they represent the intersection between the physical and spiritual realms. They are a reminder that we are not just physical beings, but also spiritual ones, and that our experiences and identities are shaped by both. Overall, this artwork is a representation of my own personal journey of self-discovery and the ongoing process of reconciling the different aspects of my identity. It is a reminder that each of us has a unique story to tell, and that our experiences and struggles are what make us who we are. In the Pretoria Art Museum Collection
