The Blank Canvas provides a critique of the superficial; questioning how the briefest of encounters requires us to make judgements based on appearances. Blank Canvas examines the misconceptions of social and cultural stereotypes providing a critique of the concepts of modern beauty. Intended, instead, as a celebration of human difference; of uniqueness and diversity. As a humble attempt at honouring the unorthodox. The intimate gaze requests the viewer to look beyond the distraction of discernible imperfections and instead to revel in the flawed otherness. Perfection is often revered by our society and this work challenges the notion that imperfection, somehow, devalues the human condition.
