The theme of identity is core to her practice and she approaches it in a way that challenges social norms and reflects the zeitgeist. “I’m interested in how we represent our identities, exploring the constant change and chase of what is ‘now’,” she adds. As cut-outs encapsulate all of this and more, who better to shift our gaze? Trypophobia sufferers, look away because there are holes aplenty below…
