C’ne loves live music, and having what she describes as ‘amazing art adventures in the city’. She also has a rather unusual talent – ‘I’m an expert at people watching!’
Tell us a bit about yourself…
My artwork mostly has to do with Gender performance and, how as a culture we all play along in order to be accepted in society. I choose to use magazine advertisements as a way of emphasizing the high and mostly unattainable goals that we have set for ourselves as a culture.
What are your inspirations?
My artwork is inspired by society and the fast-paced world that we live in. I like to explore the symbols and signs that exist in advertisements, and what it is telling us about ourselves as well as the society we live in. I mostly find inspiration in the research and exploration that I conduct before I start any project, I always find it inspiring to discover who has been there before you and what their take of a particular topic is.
I think would have to be a series called Points Plus – a series of drawings where I have recorded the thing that I have eaten based on the Weight Watchers’ plan of points for food items. This series made me become a better active artist in drawing what I see rather then drawing what I think it should look like.
My favorite creative would have to be Yayoi Kusama. This woman’s capacity to see her art as a way to help heal herself from her own illness is amazing. I enjoy having the ability to be inside a creative person’s head through their artwork, that’s exactly what she does.
