Dot to Dot

Description about the painting:

This is a self-portrait called "Dot to Dot." I use dot-to-dot method, to have someone to figure out what the self portrait would come out. Dot to dot from beginning to end comes a person who happens to be me. Dot to dot is a new motif for me. It means, that you have no idea what the painting is until you follow the dots to figure out what it is. Almost like me hiding until someone pulls me out. There is an AGB elephant because I grew up oral and being oppressed for many years, and with blue tapes on hands I was not allowed to sign. Then there is a fist with blue tape, meaning that I fought to overcome that colonialized feeling, being a "Dysconscious Audist." Then there shows a standing hand where I became an artivist. a self portrait.
