How do we develop visual prospects that reflect the importance of immigrant art?

Maria Roman, 23

My aim is to inspect the links between my cultural identity as a Romanian immigrant and the country where I chose to come to, which is Scotland. I’m documenting my cultural shift by identifying visual prospects merely based on self portraiture, body iconography, layered narrative and recorded memory. By working on mixed media pieces (drawing, painting, sculpture, etching) I am developing a “new alphabet” based on the Romanian and the Scottish heritage that ought to serve as visual explorations of such notions as “home”/ ‘’the semantics of culture”.
