Far Sited


Far Sited is one of four original pieces in the Opposites Collide Series.

The piece takes its inspiration from the clashing of western culture and product on the Himba Tribe in Namibia. The subject of the piece is positioned on one side of the canvas in prescription lenses donated by a western charity; scissors are the only other item on the matte background.

These draw in the viewer making them question the placement and then the relevance. The glasses are an obvious demonstration of the westernisation of the Himba tribe despite the best intentions of those providing aid to the region. The scissors are the second western items and hint at cutting ties with the past in favour of a seemingly easier future.
