End of year college show!

"The mind is a weave. An interlocked system of thoughts and memories, conscious and subconsious. Working with the Stream of Consciousness I had written several passages referring to my father. The series of three works show a timeline of my thoughts and memories, what happened (marriage proposal), what I remember (the shirt), and my thoughts now (handkerchief), Most people, me included, are not comfortable with revealing their inner thoughts to a large group of people, hence the fragments and coding. I wanted to explore and share myself but not entirely."

Close up I

This year at college has been such a wonderful year! I have developed my style and skill so much and have met the loveliest of people, staff and students. I’m so grateful for all the help, support and kindness I’ve received from everyone around me, so to whoever I know who is reading this THANK YOU!!

My final grade for my course was Distinction* Distinction* Distinction* and I got into my first chosen university (Leeds College of Art) and I’m so excited to start! I wish all the best to everyone I met on the course and all of the Foundation students I met this year. Thank you for making this year so pleasurable xxxxx (I love you)

I am my own slave. A

torment. A tormented mind that

you have given me. Of love?

Of sorrow? Of hate? Of lack

of love and passion? My mind is

not only mine. but yours too.

You hold so many parts of my 

mind and thoughts like a bear

trap. I want to be free from

this slavery.
