Selfie by Meri Andric

ARTIST NOTES: Sarcastic impression of social media trend;- selfie; its' need for existence in today's society with increasing popularity that became an obsession.....a way of life. My aim was to portray today's obsession and need of being exposed outside your living circles; a destructive and dangerous need to be seen and praised by strangers; are we that desperate for approval? What's happend with inner strength and soul searching; a satisfaction of being ourself without need for being exposed? Mix media on rice paper mounted on the cardboard. White 2cm frame with glass. Artwork size including fram 64cm x 89 cm. Certificate of authenticity attached.

ARTIST BIO

I'm a full time artist with a home studio in Sydney.
As a survivor of war, my work is deeply emotional and influenced by contrasting experiences of my joy for life, peacefulness and compassion with memories of horror, sadness and grief.
I communicate the celebration of freedom by rejecting the confines of pre-determined styles, where each artwork is being infused with a different vibe and message. My willingness to always explore new techniques pushes the boundaries by being unpredictable and bold – purposefully surprising my audience with every new creation!
Art lovers can experience and view my art displayed online and in person at various art competitions and exhibitions across Australia.
Some of my works are generally exhibited at the "Hunter St. Gallery of Fine Art", Parramatta.
Also, being a member of several Sydney's Art Societies I have a further opportunity to frequently display my works at various members’ exhibitions across Sydney.

Furthermore, I am currently studying a Diploma of Visual Arts at Nepean Art and Design Centre. This great course shall enrich my experience and encourage self-expression in innovative and experimental approach; a new and fresh beginning. Stay tuned!
