‘please will you be my friend?’
oil and posca on wallpaper, 2022.
the experience of being autistic is often one of isolation and loneliness. the disconnection and social difficulties often overwhelm me. i have, and have always had, a desire for connection. I want friends, i want to be able to join in, i want to get the joke, i want to feel a true sense of community. inspired by the old wanted adverts in newspapers for lovers i created this wanted advert for friends.
