Seashell Wall
Watercolour on paper
42 x 29.7 cm

The Eblouissant, also known as the seashell wall, is undeniably a favourite among students. It is often crowded with students busy studying, chatting with friends or having a meal. I feel that this area is the life and soul of the school, and it is where I make many memories of my college life.

Oil on canvas

Imposter syndrome is a phenomenon wherein one is unable to accept their accomplishments, often doubting their abilities and hence, feeling like a fraud. Like how it is painful to peel off one’s skin, I wanted to show how imposter syndrome hurts individuals and is a form of self-sabotage. I decided to explore ways to create tension in the skin as if the skin was being pulled off and stumbled upon charcoal face masks. This painting is a study on how the charcoal face mask affects the appearance of the skin.
