Bachelor of Fine Arts (Drawing & Printmaking)
My practice expands on traditional forms of printmaking through the incorporation of photography and sculpture.
The photographic element in my works brings to light the forgotten time of my childhood. This, paired with the abstracted black-and-white aesthetic from relief printing, creates a sense of anonymity that resembles a distorted memory. The sculptural element offers an opportunity for my prints to become spatial, creating a theatrical scene in the form of scaled-up woodcuts of me and my surroundings. These woodcuts present two versions of myself, each of which becomes a physical representation of my Filipino or Australian identity. Their interaction in a nostalgic, domestic scene from my childhood and adult life show that they equally contribute to my identity.
