Human Being

Medium: Canvas sheets, variable | Dimensions: 8.3 x 11.7

Human Being is a series of paintings made out of face and body products. This work was produced in an attempt to reflect on standardised notions of beauty promoted by corporations and media. It highlights the influence of ad content in restraining freedom of the consumer from maintaining unique identities.

I provided a canvas and an instruction sheet to some of my peers. Each then painted on the canvases as they performed daily routines of applying body wash, face cream, makeup, etc.
