    Bronze in People/Self-Portrait

Untried Realities is about a personal experience of social separation during Covid-19 in East London. Through self-portraiture, I bear the feelings of isolation, craving for human contact, and a growing need for nature. I live in an urban and concrete part of London, without any outdoor space and I started this series on the day of the UK self-isolation announcement in response to the situation. I use mundane household scenes to create a new “reality,” one which is physically in my flat, but one which visually transports the viewer into a parallel, more magical and humorous world.
