Afstudeerproject 2018


For my graduation project I wanted to depict the relationship I have with my family, which is a part of my biography. I started with my mother, who has a huge influence on my personality. While working I applied the emotions about my relationship with each family member I depicted. Since I have an interest in art and music (rather than an electrician’s career like my father, grandpa, uncles, brothers, and cousins), I am considered the black sheep of the family. The work is a large sculptural form, with a monumental shape showing a facial expression. I combined it with cardboard and duct tape, giving its own authenticity. Various memories of feeling loved, maltreated and encouraged have provoked me to make these sculptures.
