Ruins My Image
Ruins My Image is an expanding series of drawings that originated from a single reproduction of prehistoric San rock art from the Matopo Hills of Zimbabwe. This small 3000-year-old yellow ochre painting that depicted an injured human became the subject of my inspiration for approximately 200 drawings. These drawings explore the challenges and complexity found in evaluating an example of prehistoric representation. My final installation acts as a map of citations, distortions, and fantasies that emerged through my research.
