The art of BK DIECI...

BK DIECI has been my artist alter ego for the better part of the last five years, long before Brookinha was created. Below is a collection of the works I have developed under the name BK DIECI alongside quotes describing my influences and why I made the works. 

"Many of the works shown have been developed over numerous iterations as BK DIECI explores the concept of perfectionism in relation to the female form. Tired of the female form having been depicted at times with the typical pretty face and the "ideal" body, BK DIECI has kicked those notions to the way-side and created works that are scarred, bleeding and littered with abstract forms incorporated within disintegrating bodies.

Diagnosed over a decade ago with four autoimmune diseases including colitis, coeliac, rheumatoid arthritis  and Hashimotos these conditions do not only affect sufferers silently on the inside they also play mind games on our physical appearance, which in turn can lead to depression and anxiety. Coupled with countless images of the ideal woman, societal expectations and the demands we put on ourselves it can begin to implode both physically and psychologically as shown in the artworks.

BK DIECI has driven her consciousness into dream states to allow herself and the viewer to escape reality and go on a wild psychedelic adventure where Tittafants roam and mythical tales are abound. There are no demands, expectations or rules as to how you should look, act or behave as a woman. Welcome to the dark, twisted lucid fantasies of BK DIECI where you do not have to apologise or make excuses for being yourself."

BK DIECI wants to bring her array of thoughts, imagery and characters together to explore these relationships, their impact and the forms they inhabit beyond the canvas. Laden with sexual undertones, mythical creatures, exotic environments and human flesh these dystopic worlds delve into her precarious fantasies. Amid the furore of vibrant colours are dark, sinister nuances harnessed in dripping bodily fluids, bloody tear stains, disjointed limbs and appropriated faces.

Inspired by natural environments, wildlife and the associated patterns derived from their forms BK DIECI combines these with her obsession of pop culture. From living among the quirky streets of Tokyo that ooze colour, sexuality and disdain for the ordinary to the intricacies of western comic book characters, hyper-real fantasies and video games.
