Why Am I Made This Way?

Maria Young, 57

‘Why Am I Made This Way’ seeks to question the genetic make up of the individual through the use of abstract shape & form. A reminder that there are no straight lines in nature, I chose to explore the chaotic & often uncalculated direction life can progress in & the personal growth that results from the process. A striking colour palette is combined with erratic composition; boundaries are less defined & fractured ideas are used to create an unpredictable yet constant textural landscape. To what degree can we truly empathise with a fellow human being? Does genuine intent exist? Each of us as individuals are completely unique, our genetic coding inherently exclusive, yet we are wholly unified by a collective human experience.
