Artist's Insight:
Inspired by recent events, Breaking the Cycle, a mixed media self-portrait by Alexandre Aimée, utilizes recycled materiel along with the primary colours to examine how we are taught to close our eyes to sexual approaches, intimidation and violence. What began as a self portrait evolved into a personal response to what is going on in the media right now and in the artist's personal life, how we must open our eyes and break the cycle.
