2011, Acrylic and mixed media on panel, 11"w x 14"h (each)

“What one must paint is the image of resemblance—if thought is to become visible in the world” — Rene Magritte


The Proxies investigates postmodern notions of identity by exploring questions of individuality and the construction of the self. I consider how meaning is generated by employing semiotics and coding the images through the juxtaposition of culturally loaded iconography.

    Hi Kayla,

    I saw your art online and I absolutely love what you have done. So innovative and colourful. Do you have art for sale or in any galleries?
