HUMAN TRAITS

The exhibition’s title “Human Traits” plays with the homonymy in French and English of the word “trait”one meaning in French being the line, trace, mark, and the other (being similar to the word in English) meaning characteristics, the particularities that would individualise something. In the case of a person, this would characterise a behavioural or psychological specificity, rather than a physical one. The use of the word human in the title is to put forth what my work is inspired by ideas of “humanness”. My practice is primarily about markmaking and humans.
