Son of Fatherland
This series is about cultural identity and its place in today’s global society.
What specifically interests me about this topic, are the aspects of our cultural heritage that we choose to keep in the forefront of our personalities, either because we understand the importance of the qualities associated with these cultural traits, or because they are an inherent part of how we identify ourselves.
These works reference R. Magritte’s “The Son of Man”. The focus here, however, is depicting the contrast and juxtaposition between the global and the local, the objective and subjective in terms of cultural identity.
