The exhibition is a visual articulation of a diverse range of mediums and themes. The selection of artworks explores the multifaceted experience of human consciousness- weaving together contemplations of identity, race, femininity, and the organic harmony of nature, through portraiture, strange hybridized composites, folds, and weavings of paper, graphic prints, and expressive paintings.
