In conceptualizing work for 'Meanderboard', ideas of persona and and the contradictions of identity were prioritized. By rendering these masks, these draped forms, I was able to depict two versions of my own character: a fragmented self finding composure through introspection, and an inflated self, bearing gravity and marks of experience.

"Over and Inward" is reflective in it's positioning of layers, directional in its pull to what lies behind its shadow. "Bisected with Mirror" acts as more of a traditional portrait; a fully composed being that is subjected to manipulation and the literal act of self reflection.
