Intimacy and privacy have become intertwined in our culture nowadays. Much as we see sexual relationship as something that is sacred between couples, majority of us have deemed to seek the isolation of our experiences of intimacy from outsiders. This has brought out the belief that to reveal clues of intimacy is indecent. The question is, must one's show of emotions be excluded from the community, when intimacy ultimately thrives in relationship? What more if we talk about physical intimacy between two women?
Through digital art, I wish to portray intimacy between two women as something that exists naturally. By visually portraying the experience as landscapes, I intend to enjoin the audience to look closely at intertwined female bodies, without malice and judgment. As the viewers are invited to look closely at bodies simply as plains, then perhaps, even for a moment, objectifications are forgotten; and what exists is a naturally occurring experience, bound by connection between loving individuals.
The exhibit will run until 23 November 2016 at Sining Kamalig Gallery, Philippines.
