Bikkie Ly is a contemporary, conceptual fine art artist who attempts to exploit profound and thought provoking interpretations of issues, using digital multimedia as her medium.
Bikkie enjoys the challenges that are involved in making a new piece, as this gives her the motivation to express concepts in a contextualised approach. Gender identity is an ongoing interest to those who do not conform to societies gender norms, being the stereotypes that mainstream society puts upon us depending on our sex. Bikkie is currently working on the project ‘Fragmentation Series’, which explores the concepts and our perceptions of time/reality/memories/unconscious. This will coincide with a research area exploring the links between Trauma & Creativity. This area will be focusing on how symbolism is commonly used, in Surrealism as a form of expression.
