In pieces 2020
In pieces is a series of portraits of parts of my body. Quarantine and isolation gave me a feeling of fragmentation and loss of self reliance. While the whole world was speaking about Covid19 , realising how fragile people are, I couldn't work with my main theme anymore. The pandemic triggered me and brought back my traumas of surviving TB. I started to paint my body parts and it worked as therapy for me. Painting my body, cures it piece by piece and makes me love it again.
I would like collectors who buy the artworks to contribute them to a future exhibition, so I would be re-assembled “in pieces” and broken “in pieces” again after the exhibition ends.
