Ham (2011)

“Ham” was a show that I had in 2011 in GOSA (Gallery of Student Art) at the University of Manitoba. Featured in this exhibition were several sculptures and a couple of paintings. During this time, I was making work that was about identification, anxiety (particularly social anxiety), friendship, vanity, and confidence. With Cloud and Wonderlight, I continued to create monsters/creatures and explored ways to which these beings became manifestations of myself.
