"This written thesis accompanies my thesis exhibition, consisting of drawings and collaged watercolor paintings. It discusses the historical and theoretical influences that established the contextual content, form and development of my work. My thesis examines the idea of my personal identities from the nostalgic memories of my past and my new experience of relationships with people in an unfamiliar environment through autobiographical reinterpreted notions and re-imagined objects. To show different emotional states, delicate Gelly Roll Pens and soft watercolors play an integral part in my work as they describe the boundary of safe and unsafe social environments and my sense of vulnerability. The aim of this thesis is to evoke a broad spectrum of complex and confusing emotions that help define my identities."
Keywords: identities, mind-intersection, mindscape, autobiographic, emotions, memories, vulnerability, conflict, relationships, conjunction
