Cotton Candy Friends

Artist Statement:

‘Cotton Candy Friends’ is a community of individuals – netizens, portrayed through a mixed-media portraiture series created during my residency at the Port Moody Arts Centre. The series addresses my own judgements of who these people are and who they may or may not be. Their likeness; as seen through my eyes is of their individual character and moral quality. Each painting is about the individual person as well as the community I generated as a whole. The paintings in this series are life size so the viewer can connect with the netizens and create their own judgements of who these individuals are.
