Master of Contemporary Art
Divine Make-up, 2020 is an intimate installation of works sharing a message of strength and hope for intercountry and bi-racial adoptees on a journey of self-discovery. This installation brings together aspects of my multidisciplinary practice by sharing my expressive drawings across works on paper, perspex and visual performance. I use lines and patterns to discuss and challenge my lived experiences of identity and race, often relying on the bold use of words—both written and spoken—to convey the immediacy of my message. My practice is socially and politically engaged, responding to issues that affect my communities with a strong visual language that often interrogates concepts of individuality, adoption, sexuality, queerness and black identity.
