Grief is a deeply personal and unique experience, affecting an individual’s perception of themselves and the external world. ‘The Grief Soliloquies’ explores the idea of the experiential portrait, capturing and presenting the sitters’ perceptual experience rather than the literal configuration of the sitter before the camera. These abstracts are vignettes, glimpses of perceptual realities. These complex portraits, whose forms are only partially revealed, act as signifiers of grief experiences. Through the disruption of the figures coherency, as it dissolves into inky wisps or white oblivion, it conveys a sense of disembodiment, the loss of a cohesive self.
