Known Unknown

The work in Known Unknown explores the concepts of femininity, communication, identity and isolation. Vignettes of life are sequestered behind walls and windows, leaving the viewer with only partial insight to the subject. Visual reference to the Johari Window, in which the artist's self-perceived attributes are compared against those perceived by her peers, expands on the knowledge that there are things about each person that are kept hidden, even from themselves.
