During my studies at the university, my parents were not happy about the course I chose and made it hard for me to hang my works. Some would even be hidden from sight; implying that the work I create is symbolic of evil. My notebook is about me learning to be open to my self and breakthrough that prison that I’ve been kept in. Barbed wire material symbolizes courage and strength to express myself, the thread symbolize my sensitiveness to the nature of criticism I face back at home, as well as my willingness to carry on creating.
