In Unplanned I subject myself to the experience of vulnerability and fear of failure by approaching the “canvas” with no plan but to create a recognizable object. Layering brushstrokes in random motions, I continue this process until I see an image form. With each brushstroke is a constant questioning of myself: Should I place this brushstroke here? Should I use this colour? Will it be recognizable at all? It felt like a process of becoming, as I was surprised to see what forms came to be on the fabric. I am inviting the audience to look at Unplanned with the same curiosity and surprise as I found in the endeavor.
