Conscious II

The impact of humans on the environment is an ongoing research, and there are lessons we can learn from the existing research. One aspect of this research that caught my interest related to consumerism. To understand the constant growth of consumerism, how it impacts society and drives capitalism, and the long term effects of consumer driven behavior, I want to dive into a concept that focused on environmental and social issues that affected our society. Primarily using oil paints, my compilation of works reflects my internal struggle linked to my shopping habits. My work plunges into capturing the fabrication of clothing, and its impact on our environment. Focusing on consumerism and capitalist-values, I discuss consumerism from different perspectives. My recent work titled Vogue pays homage to our desires and the stem of those desires through forms of media, including magazines and advertisements catered to us. This work is one that plays into our mundane lives while focusing on the consumerist values that surround us. Furthermore, this concept transforms itself into installations and sculptures sourced from my own scraps and recycled materials. My work asks the avid consumer, whether they understand where their clothes come from and in turn where they end up. It asks them if they trust fast fashion brands based on sustainability and ethical fashion. It further asks the viewer what drives them to shop? These are questions I ask myself when developing my work and hope to create to allow the viewer to ask themselves similar questions.
