Project: because I Love Her’
Artist Statement: With these portraits I seek to unveil the spirit of our human instinct to create connections. Connections that not only eradicate perceived differences but also collectively unite us differently.
This portfolio: ‘because I Love Her’ are people portraits. They are colourful character-filled portraits of diverse spectrum of cultures, ages, religions and more.
All are united as individuals who self identify as female.
Description: Each woman, a volunteer for this portrait, was asked to identify the name(s) and/or relationships of women who have positively influenced and/or shaped her life. These are written answers and are included as part of the installation ‘because I Love Her’.
