The Five Selves in Fairyland is a mixed media collage painting exploring the theme of myth and folklore of Fairies.
The mixed media work is based on the five parts of the artist.


How she sees herself, how she is around others, how she views death and the transition into a fairy, and how she is in nature.
The use of storybook pages text and image transfer was used to represent the feeling of safety and wonder invoked by the lore of European fairy tales that the artist read about in storybooks in her early childhood.


In contrast, the paintings hope to capture the artist’s distress and Depersonalization-derealization disorder, through the traumatic yet strangely meditative process of creating the five works. The artist was thinking of the disorder, in which she describes it as the person in the mirror is wearing her skin but it is not her. The use of the reverse image text becomes an embodiment of that experience of looking at the self through a mirror. And also how the reverse world is in a sense the indication that the audience and artist has travelled to the Otherworld.

Chaos Daisy is a sculpture made out of human hair to form the shape of a daisy. It challenges the aesthetics of beauty with hair that has been separated from the scalp, as it is commonly seen as unappealing once it has left its host. The daisy being a weed flower represents the common yet unseen struggles faced by many that are stigmatised by society.
