I created these faces and figures which I assembled from found objects (objet trouvé). Each one’s uniqueness serves to illustrate the value of the individual and deals with the nitty-gritty of self- acceptance.
This Speak Eezy blog post titled “I Like Me … I Like You” affirms my belief that we need to realise a genuine self-assurance and wholehearted acceptance of ourselves. This intrinsic confidence in our unique value extends automatically into a belief in overall equality, inspiring non- discriminatory and inclusive recognition and approval of others.
“I Like Me … I Like You” encompasses my belief that in valuing our own essential self-worth, we are enabled to value others.
I believe in equality and liberation from domination and/or exclusivity.
I believe in safeguarding against policies formulated out of prejudice and depersonalisation.
I believe in sustaining our own independent and individual identities.
In valuing our own authenticity, we learn to embrace the authenticity of others.
Mark Twain said: “A man cannot be comfortable without his own approval.”
