This is a collection of documentation through art. A type of documentation that was solely made from my own perspective for myself, but I am choosing to share pieces of my displaced memories and things from my everyday life that speak to my authenticity. This is a collection of documentation of self reflection, discovery, authenticity and intuition. It is nothing more than me explaining who I am and it’s to be seen more as an invitation to the viewer to understand who I am. This is a series of 23 works done on printmaking paper, with oil pastel drawings engraved into the pieces.
Every piece in this series is meant to represent a type of self-portrait, kind of like multiple puzzle pieces for people to figure out through a series of 23 pieces. My inquiry for this project was to discover how memories that feel fragmented relate to my emotional and artistic processes in reflection. It’s also meant to show a way of how I can share all parts of myself (including my past) and how it explains the testament to my existence - which I executed through using the idea of art as documentation for self discovery, drawing as a personal language (semiotics) and sharing my perspectives on my memories.
