Description

THINGS! explores our human connection to objects. From our addictions to our hobbies, things are representative of who we are. They make up part of our identity. Whether we collect them, indulge in them, or simply visually enjoy them - our attachment to objects is undeniable.

Known for her hyperrealistic style and bold colours, Titi’s works single out a series of objects against stark white backgrounds, encouraging the viewer to behold the wonder that even the most commonplace of objects can bring. Featuring items like sneakers, toys and consumables, the works capture a moment in time through the artist’s point of view, things that exist and hold value in our current era.

A Message from the Artist

I originally adopted the term THINGS! as a brand name for my online store - because I wanted, quite simply, to make things that would bring people joy. But the concept soon led me on a deeper exploration into why humans have such a connection to things. As an avid sneaker collector, I started to question why these objects had become such an integral part of who I am. Why was I visually attracted to them, why did they hold such meaning? The works featured in this show are depictions of the things that have personally brought me excitement, meaning and joy. I hope you can see how much fun I had creating them.
