Confronting Vulnerabilities of The Self

Artist Statement

There’s always been this underlying affinity regarding a personal interest of visually analyzing hands. This affinity has led to the curiosity of identifying the subconscious meaning of a person’s state of mind projected by simple gestures and positions. The way they fiddle, stroke, clasp, clench and lay their hands gently over another as opposed to focusing on a person’s emotions and thoughts through words. This concept has been portrayed by ‘stills’ of such telling moments.
