The Masks I Wear to Pass is an attempt to shed light on the ways in which people (including the artist) conceal or reveal themselves in order to gain visibility, avoid marginalisation, and enjoy the privileges afforded to dominant groups. The artist uses the print process as a metaphor for otherness, drawing parallels between art practice and social interaction.
